After a busy morning of fishing mama bear and her 3 cubs left the river and found a quiet place to take a nap. The rain was falling and the three cubs snuggled in on all sides of mom to keep warm. For such a dominant species, these brown bears have a soft side, showing affection as they wrap their massive paws around the little ones to keep them safe. I felt privileged to witness this very special moment with this bear family in the Alaskan Katmai wilderness. Printed on Mat Metal Framed in Brown pine wood.
