Brown Bear Salmon Smackdown, Katmai National Park

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.
