Another “portrait” of a brown bear family from my Alaska Bear Photo Tour last week!
On my second week of my Alaska Bear and Puffin Tour we didn’t see the red fox who had become such a fixture on my first week. That is, until he showed up briefly my second to last evening – just in time!
Can you find the bear cub?
Home from a second amazing week with bears! Three sets of spring cubs this year! Plus, so much more. Along with few human visitors, so far the summer of 2020 has exceeded my high expectations. This is the famous sow crimp with triplets born this past winter.
I have never seen a sow grab her rear leg like this while she nursed. She makes like a full cradle for her two little cubs.
We photograph more than just bears on my Alaska Bear and Puffin Tour! There were sure a lot of puffin this year!
An un-cropped image of the same beautiful brown bear sow from last week’s trip. It is rare for them to look at you, but a treat when they do!
The folks who were willing to wade through the maze of testing and other covid requirements were sure awarded with an absolutely amazing trip! Three sows appeared with spring cubs, including our favorite Crimp who has triplets this year! We saw lots of nursing, cubs playing, clam digging, even a wolf and fox, it was incredible. Plus, were basically the only ones in the fields the whole time. Looks like 2020 will be a year to remember in Alaska.
