A Mother's Love

The love between this mother brown bear and her yearling cub were undeniable as they frolicked through the underbrush, lakes and streams wrestling, play fighting and sharing freshly caught salmon. Then they would lazily curl up together for a well deserved nap in a bed of grass, storing up some energy to begin all over again a little later in the day.
