Rare Black Bear Quintuplets

Black bears typically have two cubs (rarely one or three), with five exceedingly rare. So Sears was shocked when he heard reports that a female black bear had 5 cubs in the early spring of 2008.

For 4 hours a day, 7 days a week for six weeks that spring Sears sat outside poised and ready to get a shot of all five together. (Mind you, this is all taking place in New Hampshire. In the winter. So sitting outside for hours on end takes some serious devotion to your craft, not to mention a serious parka and boots).

Finally, Sears was able to capture his shot (see above) of the family in action. Then he left the bears alone, not wanting to attract too much attention or get them used to people. Read the entire article and see the photos.
