Brian Shults and I met up in Cades Cove again this week. We found this rather large male Smoky Mtns Black Bear feeding on acorns in the woods. The two of us circled round and round this guy while he ate his lunch, but it was nearly impossible to get him to strike a photogenic pose. At least he didn’t chase us!
The video below is not terribly captivating, but it’s the best I could get. After 15 or 20 minutes we finally gave up on getting any good photos and moved on.
If you’re on vacation in the Gatlinburg area, please consider a visit to the William Britten Gallery along the historic Arts and Crafts Trail on Glades Rd. My complete display of Smoky Mtns photos may offer a special memory to take home with you!
