she knows we are there by Christopher  Ewing

shot this while hanging out with some of the bestest folks in the world last month in may (marianne, wanda, judy, sally, joe, lal and emily)
this HUGE mama bear was out with her two cubs grazing in the field. id have to say, to date, she is the largest bear i have seen in the park. she has to weigh in at a good 500lbs or more. she is beautiful!! and the best part is No Tags on her ears which means she hasnt allowed the tourons that like to chase the bears to piss her off :) i know i watched her a few days sooner and she was literally teaching her cubs to steer clear of their worst threat…humans.
best if viewed larger
