Alaskan Costal Brown Bears
800-mm lens + 1.4X with Canon !DX. Moraine Creek, Katmai
Alaskan coastal brown bear after sockeye salmon.
When the sockeye 'swarm' they sometimes stack with one or two riding above the water.
Arms extended, claws out, focused on the target - a standard bear fishing attack.
Wistfully staying away from the big males at the river.
Little Ku, Katmai, our default bear viewing location the first day due to weather. Big hike...
Following mom into the river. Nothing to do but jump.
A typical charge, Moraine Creek
All the bear had to do was choose the fish he wanted.
Mom and the 2 cubs on the move at Moraine Creek.
Margot Creek at the lake.
Big hike to find this little guy.
Two bears that are familiar with one another and very likely siblings.
