Sow and cub clamming 4

A grizzly sow took her two cubs clamming on the mudflats of the Alaskan coast one afternoon last July.  The cub in the foreground had evidently eaten its fill, and decided to take a little nap while mom and its sibling continued their feeding.

I love the contrast between the two cubs:  one lying as still as a boulder while the other one throws every ounce of energy it possesses into imitating mom’s feeding habits.
