Yesterday was the first time I was able to put a lens on Griz 399 - whom Tom Mangelsen recently called 'a rock star of the bear world'. She is the mother of griz 610 (see the previous couple of posts) and has three new cubs this year.  I got to watch and photograph them for about two and a half hours - it was a wonderful evening! A nice portrait of Griz 399


and one of her three cubs
