Griz Attack

I was in Katmai, Alaska taking photos of the Grizzly Bears during the annual salmon run. At this time the bears are very preoccupied with catching as many salmon as they possibly can in order to fatten up for their upcoming long Winter hibernation. This one bear would leap up and attack the water in front of him...usually scoring a nice fat salmon.
