Not having thumbs makes catching and handling slippery salmon very challenging for bears and very entertaining for those photographing the action. This bear is deploying one of its catching techniques, pinning the fish down for an easier bite.
What caught my attention in this photo is the colorful salmon tail splashing upward.
I'm getting into the Black Friday/Cyber Monday spirit with a special offer on the Brown Bear Chasing Salmon, Remote Katmai National Park, Alaska instructional photo tour. Sign up along with a spouse or friend and save $500 on the second admission price for this bucket list-grade trip.
Dates: Thu, September 17 to Fri, September 24, 2020
If this trip is calling you, I need to hear from you as soon as possible. Contact me to sign up!
