Two of a Kind

Two of a Kind captures the only mom and cub that we saw while in the Khutzeymateen. Usually when you have two or more bears (or really any animal) together it’s provides a great opportunity to photograph interactions among the animals. However, this was an uncooperative pair from an interaction perspective, it almost seemed like if the cub got too close to the mom, then she would wander off a ways. It was a thrill when the two of them both looked at the camera at the same time and almost with the same look on their face.

 

Note that this image was taken without using a noise maker, or any other mechanism to cause the bears to look at us. Instead it was patience and luck, and gladly I had the right focus point and aperture to get both of the bears in focus.
