Cubs Copy Mother Bear

Occurred on July 1, 2019 / Katmai National Park, Alaska, USA

Info from Licensor: The mother bear has three cubs from the spring. She seemed very comfortable with us but wasn’t too sure about other bears nearby. When she got a whiff of one getting closer she stood up to investigate. It was heartwarming to see such vigilant mothering. Even more heartwarming was watching the little cubs learning from her and imitating her.
