Two Shy Sloth Bears!

We were exploring the Kanha meadow area one morning and for avoiding the crowd we went the opposite way and i thought i spotted some Wild Boar..with a cookie in my mouth i shouted Sloth Bear, when i discovered my folly! The Bear turned out to be two! It was a Mother and a Sub-adult! Fortunately, there were only 2 other vehicles on the sighting and we allowed them enough space to cross the road just ahead of us! In these series of photos, just notice how shy the Bears are and how the mother checked the road before she led her Cub cautiously away from human presence!
