One of my favorite captures from our trip to Alaska this past summer and the one that graces the cover of my Wildlife 2020 calendar. This beautiful bear was very proficient at fishing the river and catching salmon.
During the height of the salmon run when fish are plentiful, an adult brown bear can eat as many as 30 a day! Of course the goal of all that eating is to fatten up to sustain themselves through a long winter’s nap.
Thankfully they stayed focused on the fish and didn’t pay any attention to the pesky photographer. 😉
