    This spring Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) cub found that getting and keeping a meal are two different things. She was very good at snatching a large piece of salmon from her mother. There was plenty to go around. Then her meddling sister and the gulls showed up, growling and squawking for a piece of her meal. Here she makes a quick getaway, right towards the group of humans lined up at the shore. She proceeded to enjoy her hard-won snack just a few feet from us.

    I imagine it's not easy photographing brown bears or any type of bear. Especially trying to capture this moment with a 600 mm lens. Great framing and timing with this image. The thing that stood out to me was the piece of salmon that hanging in it's mouth. Just a great moment to witness, the circle of life captured in a photo.
