This Month in Photo of the Day: Most Popular Photos From 2009

I was taking close-ups of one of the cubs lying in the water when I noticed mom approaching from the side. I waited until the cub showed between mom's legs and was able to get a pretty neat and different photo.

This photo and caption were submitted to the 2008 International Photography Contest. See photo galleries, play jigsaw puzzles, and download wallpaper of images from more than 105,000 submissions.
