"Watchful Eyes"

Under watchful eyes and encouraging demeanor of mom, the three month old cub warily emerges from his(their) den. It may not be the cub's debut, but he still lacks a bit of confidence facing his "brave new world". For me, it was "mission accomplished" to view and capture such a unique (to most of us) occurrence.
