Another “portrait” of a brown bear family from my Alaska Bear Photo Tour last week!
Heading out shortly for five days in Kenai Fjords National Park. Can’t wait! This was from an overnight shake down cruise last Friday.
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.
Two young cubs watch on as a mom drops the remains of a clam she just dug up. The mom eats most of them, but every now and then leaves one for one of the cubs.
This little guy came around our bear lodge every evening – what a treat!
