A brown bear shakes the water from its coat in Katmai National Park

I spent a week camping in Katmai National Park, in hopes of sighting a brown bear. While wading through a river, waist-deep in the rain, I saw this bear close to shore. The bear shook its coat, and I barely had time to compose the shot. Luckily, I caught the action in that split second.
