Grizzly Sow and One Year Old Cubs

Yellowstone's most famous family of 2010 has lost 2 of it's members. Of all 7 bear cubs I shot last year, these are apparently the only survivors. Swan Lake Flats, YNP

Do the cubs get killed by other bears? Or, not enough food to get them through winter? Love this shot. Very iconic bear scene!

A sad update but still a joy to view this wonderful capture.

Nature is tough. This is a marvelous shot of the Mom and two survivors. Excellent work, Hal. ~

Super shot Hal. Too bad the others didn't survive.

Nice work, Hal! This is a great sow to still have two.

A sad follow-up, but nice shot...looks like Yellowstone may have warmed up
a bit from the cool spring. - Racine
