“I watched as a mother grizzly and two young cubs ran down the beach in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska,” says Andy Lerner. “When one cub took off alone, I expected the others to follow and hoped to get a few shots as they passed. Instead, when they got right in front of me, they turned around to play for a minute. I was lucky to capture this loving moment of the cub reaching up to its mother.”
Nikon D5, AF-S NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4.0G ED VR II at 400mm. Exposure: 1/1000 sec., ƒ/5, ISO 2000.
