This young Coastal Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) cub got "tired" of nursing on its mother (you can see some milk on its left arm).  While its sibling kept suckling, this cub decided to explore the rocks along the coast, and was intrigued by a group of humans in the skiff just offshore.  Here it seems to be calculating the distance and considering joining us in the skiff.  Kukak Bay, Katmai National Park, Alaska.
