Bear Hug!

I'm not patient enough to be a great wildlife photographer, but this moment was too precious not to share! The babies had just climbed down from the tree and were hungry. After the hug and a kiss she nursed them and then set off taching them how to find food themselves. It was remarkable watching their interactions. Incidentally, all three of these are california black bears even though only one is black.
