Pictured here are two siblings engaged in a friendly sparring match. The pair here are part of a trio of sibling brown bears who were a pretty tight knit family. During our time camping on the Alaska Peninsula, they earned the nickname ‘The Chargers’ based on their fishing tactics, charging at full speed with reckless abandon through the water! This day was a rather warm day for late summer, and we found the bears cooling off in the river. Shortly after having discovered them and observing them from shore, these two participated in their sparring match. The bears were comfortable with our presence and my guide Drew gave me the ok to enter the water. There I found myself, half submerged in the river with two grizzly bears engaged in a friendly play fight just a few feet away from me. A pretty special vantage point and not something anyone gets to experience all too often.
