Wonderful early morning light in this superb image. The mother is obviously taking note of any danger whilst her cubs forage.

Wow, what an experience that must have been. Love the cub on the right looking up into the tree. Amazing light
Just wondering whether you have any 'facilities' for 14 hours in the hide or whether you adopt a cross legged stance?!

I agree with all of the above, this must have been one hell of a trip of a lifetime Ron, you will more than likely start a trend with these in clubland but as far as i know you are the first.

Beautiful lighting as already mentioned and captured in a way that brings them to life.

For me Ron this is the best image i have seen from you in a long time this will do very well. thanks for sharing this experience with us.

Best regards

A wonderful experience, bet you've got loads of images! This one is a beauty and deserves to be an illustration in a bear story book.

The northern light - so beautiful. I always feel deprived of it when I come back to the US from Norway. Another uncredible image of the bears Ron - fantastic light captured.

Super light what a beautiful capture,
Wonderful natural image showing these bears in their own habitat. Now 14 hours in a hide sounds like Hell on Earth to me, my bladder would have exploded way before the opportunity to take this shot.
