Species: Brown (Grizzly) Bear | Location: Brooks Camp, Katmai National Park, Alaska, United States
This male brown bear was standing at the prime fishing spot at the top of Brooks Falls. As the salmon were jumping up the falls to continue their way up the river to spawn last July, they were at the mercy of the bears, eagles and gulls trying to catch them. This photo caught the salmon in mid-flight right in front of the bear. Did he or didn't he catch it? I won't tell.
About The Photographer
After spending two weeks in Alaska last summer, including spending several days in Brooks Camp, a passion for photographing wildlife in their natural habitat has risen to another level. By capturing this and the previous photos, I'd like to demonstrate why these and other wildlife, as well as the areas where they live, deserve to be protected.
