On Edge    Hallo Bay, Katmai National Park, Alaska, USA

Two brown bears take a break overlooking Hallo Bay from a high vantage point. When female bears have cubs they will distance themselves from other bears, especially males. Males will often kill cubs so mothers have to be diligent about distancing themselves from any potential threat. The sow had two cubs with her and from this location had a great  vantage point over the whole bay.
