Well, it doesn’t get much better than this!
When this female popped her head up from the fireweed, our guide exclaimed, “That’s the money shot!” I can’t disagree.
The bear was just beautiful while situated among the flowers of the tundra. What you don’t see are the tree little cubs that were actually nursing right at that moment, tucked down in the flowers.
I’ve previously shared pics of them in the same spot. You can see those captures here.
