Black Bear Fishing in Alaska

I purchased my permit to watch the bears from a distance. I hand held my camera for over an hour focusing on him the whole time, afraid to blink in fear of missing the shot. Then all of a sudden he lunged in the river and came out with his breakfast. Patience paying off.
