During one of our afternoon visits to the Alligator River Wildlife Refuge, my wife and I came across this obviously very pregnant bear. It looked like she was feeling a bit miserable and ready to pop that (or perhaps those) baby any minute. At times, you could easily make out the shape of the baby pressing against the mom's belly. And she was not a small bear, either. But even so, when she was ready to head back into the woods, it always amazes me how easily they disappear. I hope that you enjoy these photos and may God bless you and yours!
