Coastal Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) family.  New mom with her first litter of cubs.  They are about 7-8 months old.  Mom proved to be an excellent fisher - she (usually) shared her catch with the cubs.  Both cubs (females) carried full little bellies off the beach on this morning.  Here the cubs warily eye each other - they were constantly sparring.  Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.
