Over Thanksgiving weekend I got a chance for the wife and I to get away and for me to try out my new Sigma 150-600 f6.3 lens. This one was only set to 361mm and was then cropped but I had to get this one quickly as she went through and opening in the trees.



This one is one of her cubs and was taken at the full 600mm.

Wow! Excellent!

Thanks for sharing those great photos.

When do your bears den-up for winter?

Thanks Guy,
These photos were taken in Cades Cove which is part of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The bears there never really hibernate. They will den up in the colder weather and of course to give birth but it's not like in the colder climates where they will den/sleep for 3-4 months. Here on warmer days they could be out off and on most of the winter.
