Grizzly bear mom's have to be alert if they have cubs with them. Big males would take advantages and possibly even eats her babies. This is one of the reasons why we see mom's standing up once a while, especially when they can smell something they don't like.
I photographed this photo on one of my Wildlife & Scenery Photo Tour in the Great Bear Rainforest along the beautiful British Columbia coast. I ran my photo tours from my B&B "The Artists Point" which is located on Northern Vancouver Island close to Port McNeill.

I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS 7D, aperture of f/4.0, exposure time of 1/1250 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 300mm.
