These 3 Grizzly Bear cubs were 1 1/2 years old when I photographed them.  They wouldn't stay in one spot for very long and this is one of the few images I was able to get of all three of them together.  Everything interested them and they constantly were running in different directions.  Their mother was fishing not far from this spot and although it appears that I am in a dangerous situation (being around a mother Grizzly with cubs) I was far enough away to pose no threat to them or myself.  Although 3 cubs are rare for most  Grizzlies, coastal Grizzlies have a more abundant food source resulting in a higher percentage of triplets at birth.
