We had already had dinner, I'd done the dishes and we were just sitting in our motorhome relaxing yesterday evening. Bill spotted this up the road...
There was a Mother Bear and her cubs up in the field. At first we saw 2 cubs, but when she was bringing them across the road, we saw 3 babies. They are about 2/10 of a mile away from the rig, and I took these photos looking through the window. Even with the zoom lens, clarity isn't so good.
They stopped in the middle of the road... 2 of the little guys stood up and checked things out. The 3rd little guy is behind Mom. What are they looking at?
A 4th cub came out of the weeds and joined his Mom and siblings... Only 3 cubs are (
bearly barely) visible here, but as soon as she had all 4 together, they continued across the road into the field.
As much as I'd like to have gotten in the car and driven up to see them I know how much energy they'd use up running off when they saw me. So I'll enjoy my long distance wildlife sightings, even though the photos leave a lot to be desired. Maybe I'll see these guys again along the road when I'm driving... I may get good shots yet.
That's All For Today!
