Bear Cub, Alaska

Photograph by Douglas Croft

This Month in Photo of the Day: 2012 National Geographic Photo Contest Images

This yearling cub was "fishing" with his mom at Brooks Falls, Alaska. Mostly, he was getting in her way. Suddenly he became quite agitated and ran from the water and into a tree right next to the viewing platform where we were standing. It provided the best photo op of our trip.
