14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sharing Some Walnuts in the Great Smoky Mountains

This mother black bear and her cub were enjoying some walnuts together, in Cades Cove, TN, when I came upon them. The cub never wanted to leave his mother's side, despite the fact, that it's sibling was content to forage some distance away from this cub and it's mother.(Great Smoky Mountains National Park).
