Spring fun in Alaska.

Some of our guides in Alaska tease me about wanting to photograph cubs. Now why would anyone want to photograph cubs?

After that photo I am sure many people will think it is dangerous to be so close to the cubs and Mom will get us. The fact is AT THIS PLACE AND TIME mother grizzlies like us to be nearby. Yep that goes against everything you have heard but the biggest threat to these bears at this time is male grizzlies. They will kill the cubs so Mom will go into heat for breeding. The big males will stay way when we are nearby because they don’t want to be around people.
So when we are around photographing the cubs the mom feels safe to relax and feed.

Looking around the web I might have this trip priced to low. At least for now.
