Fun Friday: Got Milk?

Today’s “Fun Friday” post … an intimate moment with a Brown Bear sow and her cub:

When the little one’s hungry, it’s time to be fed … even if you were busy clamming on the tidal flat! Did you know that bear cubs will “purr” when nursing? I was totally amazed the first time I saw a sow nursing her cubs.

Photography Equipment Used:

  • Canon 1D Mark 2 body
  • Canon 500mm, f/4 lens + Canon 1.4x TC (total focal range 700mm)
  • Bogen 3221 tripod, with Wimberley gimbal head (original series)
  • ISO 400
  • Aperture f/7.1
  • Shutter Speed 1/400 sec.
