The Coast is Clear!”

“The Coast is Clear!”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I photographed a sow and her cubs in a field at Cades Cove for about an hour and a half as they foraged for food. The field was decorated with Queen Ann’s Lace and the grass was tall, which made it difficult to photograph them, so I sat on the roof of my SUV to get a better shot.

Then I saw the perfect opportunity to get the shot I really wanted—the bears were headed towards a freshly cut path. It took them a while to get there, but one by one they followed ma.

He looks a little timid in this image because there was a large crowd awaiting their arrival. Ma was right there though—her back paw is just out of the frame. 

If you look closely, you can see the ear of its sibling in the tall grass.

Location: Cades Cove, Tennessee in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park
