A favorite activity of the Bears in Cades Cove is tourist watching!

He is just gorgeous…and young! Beautiful shot!
Thanks. I would say he was born the prior winter. What concerns me is him getting to used to people and some idiots feeding him. The only thing I want to see him shot with is a camera!
great shot MountainHawk!
Thanks again John. I just hope he is able to stay wild in Cades Cove. Too many bears have to be relocated every year because stupid people feed them!
now this is awesome!! you get this recently?excellent shot, he does look like a yearling
Last Sunday. We are long overdue for getting together. We both seem to have good fortune in seeing Bears. I saw a Mother and her two cubs off the road in between the Cove and Tremont the same day. To far into the trees for any good pics but still cool to see.
dang!! i was up around tremont last sunday too, got out with brutus for awhile after the rain stoppeddidnt head to the cove..it was Sunday!! loleaster sunday..i opened and closed store..so didnt get out to do anythingnice to know they are out tho :)
great shot Mike, I think this is the same bear, looks like the road right before the Tipton’s
Thanks. Sure is. I thought your bear looked familiar. He was right in front of my trailblazer but thankfully did not do what he did in your pic!
oh boy, you seem too close for me but a fabulous shot, dawnx
I never actually had to get out of the Trailblazer! But he was really close at one point.
LOL! I bet… Glad its not eating the tourist for lunch!
He really was checking out the tourist. Then he would go back to foraging. Hopefully he will leave the tourist alone or the park will relocate him.
beautiful to see!
I just hope he survives the tourist!
Another great shot of this beautiful bear…..Kay
Thanks Kay! He is a beauty!
These are great shots and this youngster is a beauty. Did he ask to borrow your camera?
I always prefer bear encounters from my jeep, but we’re not always that lucky, right? They’re awake here, too, both black and grizzly.
Thanks Jan! He was right in front of my Trailblazer at one point. And no you do not usually get this lucky. These close encounters are rare. You are usually trying to shoot through the forest trees or in dark lighting situations.
