17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Blonde bear cub pauses from foraging alert to the sounds in the woods.

This young bear was alone, but taught well. It was flipping over rocks and eating the ants. We watched this young bear stroll up and down the hillside foraging for food. Occasionally looking sideways, or standing on its back legs on alert, smelling something to the east.
