On one of my trips to Katmai National Park & Preserve, my main goal was to photograph the bears, but specifically get images of sows and their cubs.... Mission Accomplished! We were treated to about a 1/2 dozen or so sows, each with several cubs of their own. What a fine time we had as they played and fished in the waters off Katmai.

In this image, this young cub stands next to its mom, paying close attention to what she's doing. I wonder what its thinking about.... what do you think?
