Like a hunting dog will stop and point toward game, this handsome beast was doing much the same, keeping very still while watching a batch of salmon swim up the river.
We made dinner for my mom last weekend and while we were chatting, she was remarking how she still is amazed at my bear pics from our trip to Alaska a couple of years ago. I told her that I had hundreds that I took that day that no one has even seen yet. Well, here is one.
This bear was pretty much average sized of the dozens we saw that day, and a pretty decent fisherman. Not long after this image was taken, it chased across the river, nabbing itself a nice meal.
I do love how you get a nice look at its claws in this image. Yeah, those could do some damage. 😉
