Under watchful eyes and encouraging demeanor of mom, the three month old cub warily emerges from his(their) den. It may not be the cub's debut, but he still lacks a bit of confidence facing his "brave new world". For me, it was "mission accomplished" to view and capture such a unique (to most of us) occurrence.
