Nursing Mom and Baby – Photographing Grizzly Bears – Part 8

Mom and Baby Nursing

The bears were so comfortable around the photographers that we got to see behavior not usually seen such as nursing. When the cubs were hungry they would follow closely around mom and make all kinds of noises that they wanted to eat. When mom was ready she would lay back on her back and the cubs would come over and begin to nurse. This was such a special treat to see and capture this activity. I love the embracing paws from both mom and baby in this image !
