This is a large grizzly bear that I photographed catching salmon near Hyder, Alaska. During the salmon run, the water is completely full of fish. Many steams and small rivers have several types of salmon spawning at the same time, and it’s interesting to watch how selective the bears are in picking what salmon they want to catch. We spent over an hour watching this particular bear. The salmon in this area can reach 40-70 lb. It was pretty impressive to see how easily this bear could catch salmon that weighed 50 lb or more.
