Brown Griz Family on the Kenai River

Jerry and I were headed home from Moose Pass and I was on bear watch as we drove along the Kenai River. Sure enough, I see a bear, then another and I yelled "there's millions!" In actuality there were only 3- a momma and her 2 cubs. Still playing with my new camera, I am thrilled w/ the zoom capabilities. Still have a little fuzzy/unfocused issues- but brown bears are exciting to see, so I'm not sure how much of the shakiness was me and what was the camera's fault. The 1st 2 pix here are actual distance from them. The rest are zoomed closeups.


She went over to one of the cubs to check out what he was munching on, took it away from him and sent him to look for something else.
He's kinda pouting don't cha think?

He's a cub.......not so cute and cuddly anymore...

Eventually they started back down river. Momma wandered into the woods expecting the kids to follow....

She had to come back out of the woods to get them. They were distracted, and disobedient.
The cub on the right is having himself a good scratch.
