Young Bear

This young coastal brown bear stole my heart when in Alaska a couple of weeks ago. He was very animated and had quite the personality. The look he gave me in this photo was “do you want to go play in the mud”? Of course I said yes, many times. More to follow.

    Wow look at that beauty! Quite a gorgeous animal….must eat well to have a coat like that! I’m sure his mama probably said “NO MUD!” And he’s telling you, “sorry, I can’t, cuz she’s here!!!”🤭

  3. Thank you very much. They are well fed, which kept me out of the food chain. He played with me a few times on the mudflats.

  4. That isn’t very close at all compared to what I experienced later. Just wait…
