Weekly Photo Challenge: Together


For today’s challenge thought I’d go back to last summer when we had a couple of opportunities to photograph a Mama Brown Bear (as opposed to Sarah’s Mama Grizzlies) and her cub.  The Mama didn’t seem concerned with us at all – the first photo was taken just outside our camp and the cub kept trying to get a closer look at us.  Mom didn’t seem to care but our guide kept gently telling the cub to leave until he finally backed away.

Trying to look just like Mom

In the second photo, the cub was closely following every move of Mom.  Together, they did very well – each came away with a Salmon.

"Lets Get'em!"

When I saw the challenge topic I immediately thought of the bear photos as we are starting to make the final arrangements for another Alaska adventure for this year – but I also thought that I should post something more recent.  This photo is of a couple friends playing together at the beach – just yesterday.

Having fun yet??

    • Dounia, they were having a ball. It was a slow day at the beach for “wildlife” but dogs are always great models!
