Grizzly bear mother 610 and her two cubs have been putting on a show in Grand Teton National Park after emerging from their den earlier this spring. In a seasonal ritual, photographers flock to the banks of the Snake River where 610, members of her extended family, and other unrelated bears romp and prowl after hibernation. On April 22 wildlife photographer Leine Stikkel captured some video footage of 610 and her cubs crossing the last ice on the Oxbow Bend, alternately falling through, swimming, and walking on top.
