Brown bear photography
MOTHER & NEWBORN CUBS
In June, the days are at their longest, providing optimal light conditions for outdoor activities. July continues the trend of extended daylight hours, offering plenty of time to enjoy the outdoors. August brings slightly shorter days, but there is still an abundance of sunlight, especially during picturesque sunsets, perfect for capturing amazing photos.
With a little luck, you may have the opportunity to witness female bears with their adorable cubs from the current season. In a safe environment free from male bears, these playful cubs engage in plenty of action, wrestling and chasing each other for extended periods. It’s a delight to observe their lively antics and witness their boundless energy.
So, whether you’re enjoying the optimal light conditions in June, capturing breathtaking photos in July’s golden hour, or witnessing the playful adventures of fluffy bear cubs in August, each month offers its own unique charm and opportunities to cherish the beauty of nature.
Slovenianbears offers ideal sighting options, however, sightings cannot be guaranteed. Nature follows its own set of rules.
