Let's go coys
There were an unbelievable number of bears seen from the road during May in Yellowstone. It was common to see a 8-12 different bears during a single day. This sow with cubs of the year (coys) was hiding behind some shrubs when I arrived. The bears were a spectacle which had drawn dozens of visitors. Bear jams could be boisterous and tension filled or almost reverent as the viewers watched the stars of the month. This jam was tense as big lens photographers jockeyed for position along the road.
