I recently travelled to Brooks Falls, Katmai National Park, Alaska. I had the honor of photographing the Coastal Brown Bears fish for Sockeye Salmon on and around the falls. Meet momma; Brown Bear #402. She was standing on the edge of the falls waiting for a leaping salmon. Her yearling cub sat only 15 feet away on the bank of the river. Every few minutes she would turn to check on her cub, and a salmon would leap up the river behind her. This was a close call for the salmon that got away.
