Re: aargh

Yes I see that!
It was a Black bear mother with two young cubs. Mother and one cub crossing the road just before my camera was ready. The second cub was sleeping at a tree 15 meters on the left side. After wake up and screaming he could hear the mother on the other side of the road and follows. That´s the moment of the picture. Distance is about 15 meters. Savety was provided by two National Park rangers.
It was awesome afternoon. Only 45 minutes later, we saw a grizzly in the meadows of Yellowstone, but too far away for a good photo (i have no big tele for wildlife photo), just looking with binoculars.
I hope you enjoyed the photo.
