Grizzly bear at the top of Brooks Falls face-to-face with a fish

Every summer, grizzly bears congregate along the Brooks River to catch and feast on salmon as the fish swim upriver and leap over Brooks Falls to spawn. Standing at the top of Brooks Falls, this bear came face-to-face with a fish as it leapt out of the water.
