Wildlife artist Bonnie Marris is exuberant about her favorite subjects:
wolves, horses and bears but just about any wildlife subject portrayed
with their young is the most exciting of all.
Marris took what became, for her, an historic research trip one
year to Yellowstone National Park as she was lucky enough to witness
an unusual number of bear and their young. Stationed near one of
the only fast-running rivers in the Park, Marris observed the mother
bring her babies down to see water for the first time. What can
be a ferocious and dangerous mammal, this mother bear treated her
cubs with gentle patience and care.
