This approximately 19-month old brown bear cub was relaxing after a breakfast of salmon. A sliver of sunlight provided a momentary back-lit scene. Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alaska.
Brown Bears have coats often tipped with a lighter color, giving a "grizzled" appearance. They also have a large lump of muscle above their shoulders. That muscle gives them great strength in their forelimbs. The Grizzly Bear is a sub-species of the Brown Bear. Brown Bears can weigh up to about 1500 pounds and can run at speeds of 35 miles per hour.
