Katmai National Park, Alaska
This image of two young brown bear cubs waiting for their mom to catch a sockeye salmon dinner was taken back in 1995. Yes, this photograph was captured with slide film and converted to digital later. It was such a joy to watch these two young cubs along the banks of the Brooks River. They paid close attention to their mom, but also played in the dirt and even took a nap. To this day, I have not witnessed another moment quite like this one. It’s one of my all time personal favorite wildlife sightings.
