2022—Stickin’ Close to Mama

The Kodiak Brown Bear cubs stuck close to Mama Bear much of the time. The grass, which was growing quickly, helped to keep them partially hidden. It was amusing to watch them as they grazed nonchalantly, then they would suddenly pop up to look around. In this shot, both Mama Bear and one of the cubs looked up briefly, then just as quickly, returned to grazing. It was nice to realize that they had accepted our presence and seemed not to feel threatened by us.
