Standoffish Brown Bear
Coastal Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) cub, probably about 30 months old and probably in line to be "cast off" by its mother this autumn. Pretty big bear, which became apparent when it stood up and gave us "the look." Also more intense than we expected after watching the cub and its sibling lounge around and nurse on their mom for a couple hours. Check out those eyes. This individual looks like it's on its way to becoming a big, healthy adult bear. Hallo Bay, Katmai National Park, Alaska.
