Photographer's Note

I shot this photo of an Alaska Brown Bear at Brooks Falls. Early to mid-July is prime time for the sockeye salmon run in this part of Alaska. As the salmon head upstream they encounter Brooks Falls where hungry bears are waiting for them.

I have photographed bears on the top of the falls catching salmon in mid-air. This time the bear in the photo went underwater and popped-up with the salmon in his mouth.

Scanned using a Nikon Super Coolscan 8000 at 4,000 dpi.
Edited in Photoshop CS - adjusted levels, increased saturation, added a warming filter to remove a bluish cast from overcast skies, sharpened.
