15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Cubby Hole

Each Spring I head into the forest to observe and photograph my favorite animal, the North American Black Bear. One of the most amazing characteristics of bears, is how similar to humans they are, especially the love and bond between a mom and her baby. It was feeding time for this little guy . Mom gave the signal, sat up and her little bundle of joy knew just where to go . But just like a little kid a he had to play, even if just for a second .
