Plopped Down

Standing while eating can be long and tiring, so therefore this Grizzly Bear cub plopped himself down in the grass, and decided to eat while sitting.  This does not alleviate the strain on the neck from pulling the grass, but it does take some stress off their feet.

 

In other years, when the grass was deeper, this cub would have totally disappeared when he sat down, so we were lucky that the grass was slow to grow this year, and gave us the chance to photograph the cubs even when they were not on the edge of the grass.
