Near Encounter

I checked my cameras yesterday morning due to the forecast for rain today. Looking at the time stamps on the Mt. Pond pics I nearly bumped into the sow and triplets. They had walked past the camera about 15 minutes before I arrived. I didn't get all three cubs on camera but looking at the sow I'm sure it's the triplets. Would have made for an interesting morning if I was 15 minutes earlier.
For some reason the camera didn't think there was enough light when the bears came through to switch from IR to color pics. But did when I got there.






Note the cub in the tree on the upper left side.

You are certainly having lots of bear activity. It would have been cool to see them in person, but with no incidents, of course.

Great photos! I love it when I know that I almost met the animals who my cams photographed. Those triplets are growing up well!
