After weeks of regular visits to a local creek, I managed some clear views of a family of Black Bears feeding on the bountiful Kokanee. The cubs are now old enough to catch fish on their own.
The sow and her two cubs wander alongside a creek filled with Kokanee.
The Kokanee don’t like being caught. This one tried to escape the sow, only to head towards a cub.
This reminds me of a portrait of a toddler caressing its favourite stuffed animal.
The creek didn’t supply a doggy bag, so the sow carries away leftovers in her mouth.
“Mommy, mommy, look at me, I really did it! I caught my own fish!”
