We were working our way up Blackfish Sound looking for some killer whales reported to be in the area when we came upon a Steller sea lion. This sea lion cam within 5 meters (yards) of the back of the boat, of course I missed that photo. Sea lions are very curious and if you sit quietly in a boat they will approach quite close.
This mother grizzly does not have her claws out in anger to discipline her cubs. A grizzly’s claws are not retractable they are meant for digging or on this day catching salmon. This is a bear that was tired of having the cubs too close which made it harder to catch salmon. Once they moved off a ways she was able to catch more and then shared but the sharing was on the shore where the cubs were able to eat.
