While camping on Madeline Island over Memorial Day weekend, I was out running solo for some early morning geocaching. I had a black bear sighting that I managed to capture on film. Normally the only part of a bear you'll see is the rump as bear is running away the other direction. But what you don't see in this photograph are mama bear's three cubs 30' up the tree. She wasn't going anywhere.
Enjoy the photographs (click thumbnails for larger view)..
