What was beginning to be a rainy day drive in the park turned out to be a great opportunity to catch a few photo's of momma bear and her cubs. The 70-200 f2.8 lens gave me a few closeup photo's.  Just moments prior to this photo we were driving down a road and saw several cars parked and people out wandering in the woods. I started towards the woods when I heard there was a bear sighting and cubs were up a tree, I had to go back to the car and swap the lens from the 18-70 f2.8 to the 70-200 f2.8 which would allow me to keep a safe distance from the family. I think I had great success even though I was tucking the camera under my rain coat to keep it from getting wet. Pulling it out to snap a shot or two. I think my next purchase will be for a camera rain coat or a cheap umbrella. By the way.. Thanks to the lady who loaned me an umbrella at an earlier sighting of another bear family.
