They're so cute and you captured them in excellent detail in spite of the situation. Great work with the camera and lighting adjustments too. I like the angle on this shot because it features them in two unique poses as they react to the situation each in their own way. What a lovely capture Debra.

Hi Heather, sorry for not replying quickly I thought I had. However, thank you for the kind feedback. Thanks for pointing out the unique poses I hadn’t noticed or thought about that.thanks again.

Yves Langlois

Great shot Debra. You capture there more than 2 bear in a tree. It is the day to day life of those little kids playing together. Personaly I dont see any problem with the photo. colors and light are ok and the kids are so cute. Well done.

Debra Plett

Thanks Yves appreciate you knowledge and comments. I was looking into a lot of glare and really had to adjust the shadows to bring back some detail. I wish there was more light on the top bear.

Clifford Dupuis

What a great shot Debra particularly under these difficult conditions. Th highlighted face on the lower one is a bonus..well done

Debra Plett

Thank you Clifford I appreciate the feedback on the shot. I was wishing for a bit of light on the top bear as well.

Jane LeBlanc

Nice shot, Debra. Shooting into the sun is a problem, for sure. You did a great job with the situation you had.

Debra Plett

I appreciate your feedback Jane. Thanks very much.

Mama bear whisked her two cubs up the tree to safety when to many people started to gather. I had wanted to back up the car to get a better angle so I wasn't shooting into the sun but someone pulled in behind me before I could back up. I took a few shots and moved on.
