While we weren’t fans of the “Disneyification” of Cades Cove, I was rewarded with 7 bears while lugging my gear around the woods.

This little guy was with his momma and one other cub at a tiny cemetery deep in the woods on a ridge.

Not the sharpest shot, but even with a tripod shooting at 600mm focal length is almost impossible to keep perfectly steady.
