The Black Bear Cubs Strike Again!

I haven't posted for a long time and could barely remember how to access my blog.  I'll post here from time to time, but probably not every day.  So, just check from time to time to see if there's anything new.  These are two of the three black bear cubs that were hanging around the Tower area most of the spring and summer.  These two little guys would run and play, climb trees, etc., but their other sibling usually would stay back and observe.  I figure that maybe these two were the rowdy boys and the other one was the sister who just wanted to stay in the background watching her brothers play silly boyish games.  That's just me speculating, of course.  I really have no idea why the one bear was never included in the bear games.  I'm hoping its not because it was sick or weak.  I know it's difficult for a sow to raise three cubs, so I'm hoping that all three of these cute babies make it to adulthood.  It's a harsh environment in Yellowstone and many don't make it. I hope these guys do!   Anyway, I hope you enjoy seeing these two cute babies even if you can't see them very well because of the tree limbs. Sorry about that, but I couldn't go move them.
