Outstanding capture and I can't imagine what it must be like to have these animals on your back door step. #8106925

I have this nightmare of coming upon a scene like this, angering mom, and stumbling as I race back to my car. You only had to run home but she can probably outrun you! Having said all that, this is such a fantastic sight! It's pretty unusual to see 4 cubs to say nothing of a pair. You will smile about this for many years. #8106927

Stunning! How fortunate you were there. I had this happen to me once, and I didn't have a camera with me! Mom warned her cubs but didn't come at me, watched me for 5 minutes and then left with her kids in tow. Great experience. #8108330
