Black Bear Sow and Two Chocolate COYs, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA

Shooting has been really slow on this visit to Yellowstone National Park. Yesterday was the first day that I've photographed more than one set of subjects, and this set was particularly nice! It was the first time I had seen this black Black Bear (Ursus americanus) sow and her two chocolate cubs of the year (COYs) or spring cubs. When I arrived, the cubs were safely up a tree while the sow grazed, and after a while she called them down and led them across a nice open area before getting tired of all the paparazzi and taking them far away. Enjoy!
