    I am planning this year's vacation so I dug out some from last year. These are from various places in the Great Smokies between Pidgen Forge, Cades Cove and Cherokee.

    I was only about 25 feet from the little wild black bear, but she had cubs and let me know to vacate the area with a "woof". I obliged.:wink:

    Nice pictures.
  5. Very nice photos. Looks like you had a marvelous vacation. We had an encounter with a black bear a couple of days ago. Stupid me--I got out of the way instead of taking a photo!:biggrin:

    BTW, if you hit a hard return after adding the link to each photo, you will get a space between your pictures. It helps us to see them better and enjoy them more if they aren't touching each other.

    Thanks for the remarks folks.:smile:

    The little bear was around 200lbs and was pretty easy going for the most part. She let me get in between her and the cubs for a few shots and she really didnt pay much attention to me. Then for this shot I was a lot closer and when the camera clicked, she looked at me, popped her jaws, stomped her front feet and "woofed" at me.

    I hollered at my 11 year old fearless daughter to skeedattle and I was right behind her. It was great fun.

    I like the pics to touch better myself, but if most do not then I am happy to oblige. Cheers, Paul
