Bear Hug

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Christine Mead

I laughed (quietly!) as I watched these 2 1-year old bear cubs play and fight and tussle in the grass. Their mother calmly kept eating as they fooled around, and after a while they all settled down to graze together.

Location: Silver Salmon Creek, Lake Clark National Park, Alaska, USA
