Brown Bear Cubs, Kenai Penninsula
I dug into my photo archives for this blog post- I took this photo in 2005 on a trip to the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. We found these cubs swimming in a deep pool within the Russian River, which is a famous tributary of the Kenai River popular with the fly-fishing community for its large runs of salmon and rainbow trout which feed on their eggs. Anxious fisherman could only stand by and watch as these cubs occupied a pool which held a large number of silver salmon. While the bared teeth look ominous, these cubs were merely playing.
