Luckily we had at least 2.5 inches of wood deck between us and these giant black bears
I lost track, which bear cub is this?
Good news, wet bears smell a lot like wet dogs
Oh yea, there are other things to take pictures of other than bears here!
Another successful fisherbear
They surprisingly don't eat very much of the fish. Bears are so wasteful
JUST KIDDING! Bears are awesome! (sorry)
Another close up
Another cute bear cub
Yet Another Cute Bear Cub (YACBC)
A couple of the "far away" bears
Another one of the near bears
Uh oh, someone has been fighting...
Hey! Bruce caught one! Yea Bruce!
These guys wouldn't let us leave the bear blind so I just started snapping photos
Luckily they were adorable
And practicing for the red carpet apparently
2 bear cubs!
Going back up the tree one more time for good measure
Ok, off you go! Time to get back to the boat...
Kiawah in Anan Bay, AK
Something like 50 seals were just swimming around in the bay
Another squirrel, I mean, bald eagle
One! One bear cub in a tree.
Two! Two bear cubs in a tree
Probably my best eagle shot of the trip
2 bears and an eagle n the same tree. Alaska!
This bear was trying so hard for a salmon but kept just missing it. I felt bad for him and named him Bruce. We were basically best friends
Some other bear showing Bruce how its done
Bruce getting frustrated...
I wonder what these cubs are looking at...
Oh, another bear
The cubs spent probably 70% of their time in trees
Still looking adorable, of course
Sometimes they went fishing with their mother
Other times they would cause backups on the trails, or "bear-jams" to the locals
So. Many. Bears.
We ran out of space on our SD card very quickly
But we were so close I couldn't help but keep taking pictures
Even as they scampered away
A big grizzly that we passed on the trail in
Oh look, those people are STILL stuck in a bear-jam 20 minutes later.
We were so close you could see the fish blood in their teeth
