Grizzly Bear and Cub

Photograph by Trish Carney, Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

Yellowstone! Had the pleasure of observing this grizzly sow and her cub this May. The snow was deep and the cub was riding on the sow's back as she was rooting through the snow for food. The sow had just caught a rodent and lifted her head to reveal her catch.

Beautiful picture, brave people do not use guns, they use cameras.
