Earlier this year, Gloria and I traveled through the Great Smokey Mountains. Their are many scenic stops along U.S. 441, the main road across the mountains. At one of these stops I saw about four people looking into the forest. Kidding, I asked if they were looking at a bear? They nodded yes and pointed to a mother and baby sound asleep high up in a large tree. I quickly grabbed my camera with my 70-200mm lens. The baby bear you see above seems to be looking at the camera, but it is sound asleep in the crook of the tree.
