Black Bear Quints

I got another wonderful email. This one features a Black Bear sow with five cubs. This time, unlike the eagles over lake Tapps, I found the site of the wildlife photographer who took the photos.
I think these pictures have been circulating for a long time. If you haven't seen these excellent pictures of a rare multiple birth, they and some other very nice wildlife photography are at Tom Sears' site.

Have a lovely day!

Those are such great pictures and you are wonderful to link to the photographer and let him have credit for his work.

Thanks, Linda -- it is so seldom that the photographer gets the credit for wonder pictures that circulate via e-mailing lists!

I'd not seen those before ... Thanks for the prompt to smile, Linda!

Thanks for your comments!
I didn't have time to look at many of Sears' pictures, but I hope to get back to them:)

I have to echo what the others have said.
I need to get back to his other pictures as well.
Thanks for commenting on my post. Its appreciated.

That's incredible! Amazing that the mother bear was able to find enough food to rear all five cubs! Great pictures.

Wow! That was truly amazing! I think the Mama Bear's name should be Myrtle (as in Fertile Myrtle! hehe).

Excellent once-in-a-lifetime photos for Tom Sears for sure.

Thanks for sharing this info and link.
