I do agree that it is a great photo, but I guess you got confused - it wasn´t posted by me, it was posted by eibar.

Seems like a good bunch of cubs for one mom.

This photo is from Katmai National Park near King Salmon, Alaska and taken from from a visitors viewing platform on the way to Brook's Falls. Even so a very good lense and a tripod would have been required to get this shot. It would have been an easy matter to set up a visual distraction there, as suggested above by Long Shot. This shot was precisely focused with a narrow depth of field (notice how out of focus the far shore line is). It is too bad that eibar didn't include more information with the post.

Some wild-life photographers use a device called a pop-up, or wiggler, which has a long stiff wire or metal rod with some sort of coloful ribbon or flag, or sometimes a noise maker on a weighted base. The device is planted at a strategic location, and set with some kind of timer. . The old ones were spring-loaded like a wind-up clock..newer ones are electronic and can be remotely operated. The photographer positions himself and when the set time elapeses the device 'pops up,' making just enough visual distraction or sound to attract the animals' attention. Wild creatures tend to be very curious, especially about anything new or strange in their environment, and will pay rapt attention to the distraction for a long time, allowing the photographer to shot lots of photos with the subjects looking in the direction he's chosen.

He he, looks like the little ones are getting ready for something to come on their direction - look how one of them has his paw on his (supposedly) mom´s belly and another one has it on one of his siblings´ head. Like saying: 'get ready, here it comes' :-) Anyways, I wonder what has caught their attention ...
