Brown Bear Yearling Favoring Injured Paw by Glatz Nature Photography on Flickr.This blonde Second-Season cub injured its rear left paw during our visit to Lake Clark National Park. According to the Guides, a mating couple chased the Mom and her cub around the meadow. We noticed it wasn’t standing up on its hind legs like it had the first couple days, and then we saw it limping. Here the cub is scrambling to keep up with its mother, but she was patient and the cub seemed to be moving better by the end of our trip.

Portrait of Brown Bear Cub on the Meadow by Glatz Nature Photography on Flickr. Learning from an experienced Pro (their Mother), this little guy and its twin should navigate the twists and turns of growing up Brown Bear without much difficulties. Both of the 2010 spring cubs survived and we spotted them in June 2013, looking healthy but troublesome as usual. Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.

Brown Bear Cub Has a Little Secret …. by Glatz Nature Photography on Flickr."I’m twice as big as my brother…heh heh…" This cub, the larger of two spring cubs we saw frequently during our June 2013 visit, looks like it’s going to be a very large bear. His head and paws were enormous for its age, and he was about twice the size of his sibling. To distinguish one from the other when viewed from afar, we nicknamed this cub "Shoulder Pads" (for the wide natal ring around its neck), and the other cub "Necklace" (for the thinner, string-like natal ring around its neck).

Brown Bear Boar Crossing Stream by Glatz Nature Photography on Flickr.This young male Brown Bear hauled pretty quickly in the water. He was foaming at the mouth because a female bear with cubs has chased him off. He didn’t want to mess with her. The Cook Inlet, Alaska.
