I recently watched Bears, the newest Disneynature documentary to be released to DVD and Blu-ray, and all I can say is "wow"!
 
Bears is set on the Alaskan peninsula and follows a mother brown bear and her two cubs through their first year of life. Through absolutely breathtaking cinematography you witness the bears' journey from their winter den high in the mountains down to the shore and their summer food source. You see the many hazards they face and learn much about brown bears in the process. For example, did you know that fifty percent of brown bear cubs do not survive their first year of life? Also, the brown bear has an excellent sense of smell, seven times that of a bloodhound.
 
I will admit to being fascinated by bears and was mesmerized by this beautiful documentary. If I were to name a downside though, I found the narrator to be a bit annoying and the film edited to be overly dramatic at times. However, the beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife shots captured in this film more than made up for any annoyances.
 
While you are waiting for your copy of Bears, don't miss out on others in the Disneynature series. They are all beautifully done as well as educational.
