Cades Cove is part of the Great Smoky Mountains Park and is located just outside of Townsend, Tennessee.
Black bears are common to the Cades Cove area. So common, locals have named the mother bears who birth cubs there each year. These three siblings are the offspring of the mother bear known as "Hazel". She was resting in the tall hay below the tree as the three cubs played. The photography was taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV and Canon 100-400mm 5.0f lens.
Three sibling cubs enjoyed playing together during a summer evening.
