Amazing!! Black bear quints. Once in a lifetime photos.

Black  bears typically have two cubs; rarely, one or three. In  2007, in northern New Hampshire, a black bear sow  gave birth to five healthy young. There were two or three reports of sows with as many as 4 cubs, but five  was, and is, very extraordinary.
The photographer  learned of them shortly after they emerged from their  den and set a goal of photographing all five cubs  with their mom – no matter how much time and effort was involved. He knew the trail they followed on a  fairly regular basis, usually shortly before dark.  After spending nearly four hours a day, seven days a  week, for more than six weeks, he had that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and photographed  them.

He used the equivalent of a very fast film speed on his digital camera. The print is properly  focused and well exposed, with all six bears posing as  if they were in a studio for a family portrait.

The  photographer stayed in touch with other people who saw  the bears during the summer and into the fall hunting season. All six bears continued to thrive. As time for hibernation approached, he found still more  folks who had seen them, and everything remained OK.  The photographer stayed away from the bears because  he was concerned that they might become habituated  to him, or to people in general, and treat them as approachable friends. This could easily become  dangerous for both man and animal.
After Halloween, no further reports and could only hope the bears survived until they hibernated. This spring, just before the snow disappeared, all six bears came out of their den and wandered all over the same familiar territory they trekked in the spring of 2007.
The photographer saw them before mid-April and dreamed nightly of taking another family portrait, a highly improbable second once-in-a-lifetime photograph.
On 25  April 2008, he achieved his dream.

When something as magical as this happens between man and  animal, Native Americans say, “We have walked together in the shadow of a rainbow.” And so it is with humility and great pleasure that I share  these exhilarating  photos with you.
Do pass  them  on!
