Great shots, we were up in that area last weekend but didn't go to Cades Cove thinking that it was to hot for any animals to be out, guess we should have stopped by. The bear shot is my fav.

I absolutely love the bear image! I live pretty close to Yellowstone, so I know about being lucky like that! Great set!
