BLACK BEAR AND CUB--Drip-Dry or Spin Cycle?

Along the Columbia Icefields Highway, Alberta, Canada. Just seconds before this image was captured, the cub, in attempting to cross a stream to go back up into the surrounding hills, had been caught in a swift-moving current. We stood with our hearts in our throats, but he triumphed and made it safely to the other side to stand with mom. You can see the water dripping from their fur.
