Patient Bear, Brooks River, Katmai National Park, Alaska

This brown bear knows why it’s called “fishing” and not “catching”. On this overcast morning he waited nearly motionless atop the falls for an hour, watching the churning pools below the falls, before a school of salmon came up the river and gave him opportunities to catch a meal. Brooks Falls, Katmai National Park, Alaska.
