What a thrill it was to see this family of Black Bears including these two beautiful cubs. Survival behaviors are taught early by momma including how to scamper up a tree at the first sign of danger. If they don’t go right away, her vocalizations will get the job done. In this case it was a male bear entering the area that showed off their skill set. No need for momma to send a louder message.
Howard Muscott has photographed nature, landscapes, and wildlife for more than 35 years. Grounded in his early years of hiking, backpacking, and mountain climbing, Howard’s love for nature photography is fueled by the exquisite beauty of the natural world and the wildlife residing within its various ecosystems. “The ideal photograph tells a story that speaks directly to the heart and moves people to self-reflection. It combines one’s vision for the image with the best natural, ideally golden light, and requires both persistence and opportunity.”
