Katmai Brown Bears - The Youngster

Would you believe that I still have more photos to share of the Katmai brown bears?  Oh, I could share such photos with you for years and years. But I really need to wrap up this series soon. Onward!

This young bear liked to hang out near the lower river platform at Brooks Camp.  Because he was a small juvenile, he was wary of other bears in the area and frequently looked around to make sure the coast was clear.

And if he heard a slight sound or caught a scent, he would pop up on his little hind legs to get a better view over the tall grasses!

Totally oblivious to us, he sat down right below our viewing platform for a while and gazed across the expanse of the marshland water.

And I couldn’t resist capturing his profile while he was deep in thought.
