American Black Bear (Ursus americanus)

We watched this sow and cubs walk down the road towards us in Florida.  It took her a while to figure out what the truck was, as she kept standing up to look at us.  Eventually, caution won out, and she took her cubs into the swamps.

Another Sow with cubs, my camera was in the truck bed in its case when these guys ran across the road in Oklahoma.
