Mother Bear with Cub, Alaska by David & Shiela Glatz
Via Flickr:
This mother Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) lost one of her cubs born last year. This male cub looks just like his mother. Hopefully he inherits and passes on her mellow, easy-to-photograph disposition. Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.

Brown Bear Family Meal by David & Shiela Glatz
Via Flickr:
“Necklace” takes its turn riding mother’s back while “Shoulder Pads” looks on. Mother Brown Bear and her spring cubs dine on sedge in the meadow of Lake Clark National Park, Alaska. We nicknamed the cubs based on the relative size of their natal rings (the band of white fur around their necks, which usually wears off after their first year or so and is replaced by brown fur). Shoulder Pads also had a huge head compared to its sibling. Difficult to get all three with their heads up at the same time! Lake Clark National Park, Alaska
