We watched this young bear dig in the snow/ice for a very long time ... so long, that we thought he was being very foolish expending so much energy for nothing. However, he proved us wrong! He eventually found the remnants of a seal and had himself quite a feast. With a full belly, he washed his face and paws in the snow and then made his way to the edge of the ice for a well deserved nap.
