Mother with sleeping cubs

     Probably the same family (11 month cubs) we saw out on the ice in the previous picture; now taking a rest in the willows. The bay had not yet frozen sufficiently for the bears to leave shore when we were there in the first week of November—perfect timing for us. The tundra ponds (fresh water) had completely frozen, but it would still be a week or two before the bay froze completely.
