Brown bear sow and cub, Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.
This sow was able to repeatedly dig up clams with incredible effectiveness. On the other hand, the poor cub dug and dug, but was never able to find a single clam – at least while I watched. I don’t think it had learned exactly where to dig just yet. After awhile, the cub went over and began watching his mom very, very closely – it was really fascinating to watch. I don’t know if he was a very attentive student, or just really hungry!
Since we have some brief internet access, I thought I would post a quick update. As you can probably tell, we are having an awesome trip!
Here are more brown bear photos.
