Through The Lens 24 – Breakfast In Cades Cove

Black Bear & Cubs

Momma Bear and her three cubs enjoy a breakfast of walnuts in Cades Cove.  If I would have arrived a couple of minutes earlier I would have seen one of the cubs up in the tree shaking the branches to knock more walnuts off.

I knew black bears ate acorns, but had no idea about walnuts.  Apparently that’s their go to food when the acorns aren’t plentiful.

Apologies for the unplanned hiatus. Stop by Tuesday for Part 3 of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park trip report.
