This little guy was photographed in the Cade’s Cove area of Smoky Mountain National Park. We spotted him, his two siblings, and mother while making our way around the loop.

They group was busily strolling along parallel to the roadway, making popping off shots an easy proposition.

This was one of the first images I managed to capture. The light wasn’t real good and it was an effort to get a sharp image. Any movement on his part caused enough blur to make the image a throwaway – and I have quite a few of those to be sure!

However, every now and then Mother Nature gives you a break and you capture a sharp image of a cute expression – and I think this was one of those times!
