Artist's Description

A young bear with mom looking at all the tourist piled up in the middle of Laurel Creek Road…. one of the biggest problems in the park and especially Cades Cove is people stopping in the middle of the road to take pictures. Due to low light and being hand held I had to use an ISO of 800 to get this shot…imagine the results from the many cell phone shots that were in use also….Black Bear, ursus americanus…Mama’s ear tags were digitally removed if anyone wants the shot with them in, please let me know….Shot was taken in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park…noise may be visible on larger prints……Black bears in the park are wild animals, caution should be use in approaching them…The bear in Cades Cove are a little more tolerable to people than these would be. Those in the cove see 1000’s of people daily. People thinking that because they got close to one in the cove, they could anywhere in the park. Mama bear did a false charge to some that were trying to approach them a few minutes after this shot….Those in the cove and elsewhere can kill you. A young child was mauled in the park this year as he bent over to play in the water..To the bear he probably looked like a small deer…
