Her First Litter of Cubs
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.
