I was sifting through my Lightroom archive when I came across these photos of a Mother Black Bear. They were taken in June on the Tennessee side of the Great Smokies. Although it appears I was right next to her, I was actually a substantial distance away using a 400mm lens. Sue and I quietly watched as she foraged for food, paying little attention to my clicking shutter. I remember looking into her intelligent eyes. I felt no fear, only peace.
