These are some of our favorite photos of Alaskan Brown Bears, all of which were taken from Ursa Major. The cubs in photo #1 should be full grown this year. We’ll may see these guys again in Red Bluff Bay, Baranoff Island, Alaska.
Her cubs have grown to nearly her size. They will on their own after 2-4 yrs. with their mom.
A brown bear will stand either to intimidate or to better see any threats around them.
No one would blame him for taking an easy snack. Seagull can’t taste as good as salmon, but you take what you can get.
Brown bears will cross streams, bays and even much larger bodies of water as they roam, looking for the first salmon runs of the year.
Early in the summer bears will forage on grasses and berries as they wait for the salmon to arrive.
This bear is standing in 6-8 ft. of water. This healthy, fat bear is well insulated for the cold Alaskan waters.
No salmon in this stream yet, better luck tomorrow.
