Mama Bear didn't seem to concerned about either us or her cub. Occasionally she stopped and poked at something in the grass but then she continued sauntering on towards the trees at the other side of the meadow.
Here is the cub who seemed to dilly dally and enjoy his romp. He had no intention of catching up with Mama any time soon.
Just when we thought she wasn't paying attention, Mama turned and looked at us and waited a moment for her cub. When the cub caught up and nuzzled at her mouth, she took a paw and swatted at the cub, cuffing it alongside the head. I wasn't sure if that was for dilly dallying or some other unknown offense! :o)
And then as quick as it happened they were gone and we were left with an open and empty meadow!
For another perspective, Shelley's Blog where she has some pics of the bears and of my family.
