Black Bear cubs got to be the most adorable sights in the Smokies! That is as long as you know where Mom is at! In this case she was in the same tree as Jr.

    Mike this is so cute, the title is perfect, instant fav…

  • Momma thinks so too! She was a few branches higher watching her cub coming down the tree. Crazed tourist so bold moments before were heading for their cars. Momma and I had to chuckle. I took a good faith step back and watched both cubs and then mom come down and retreat into the forest. The crowd of 20 or more was now about 4. Good fun!

    Funny capture,…we had a couple of cubs visit us once. I had been hearing them at night. While they were up in a tree, i wanted to run and get my camera. I told the neighbors try and keep them up in the tree till I got my camera, but they came down and ran for the woodland.

    Sweet, …..I have seen where they have been in my garden recently. There were two cubs and a Mom in a tree once, I ran for my camera, but they got down and ran for the woods before I got back.
