Return to the Great Bears

Bears Chasing Salmon

Hey Folks,

Bears are my favorite photography subject. By far. 

Mostly because I have had the exceedingly good fortune to photograph them as often as I have.

This summer I’m so looking forward to getting back to the Alaska Peninsula and the Katmai National Park area to see the great bears of the Katmai region. 

I definitely love catching the action of a hungry bear hot on the heels (tailfin) of a spawning salmon. This hungry young mother bear had 3 even hunger and younger mouths to feed, and she was pretty intent on doing what needed to be done to make that happen.

Great memories of a great trip.

We still have space on Fall Grizzlies Tour as well.

Hopefully when we return this summer we’ll catch more action like this. And if not, it’ll still be awesome just to be around these magnificent animals. They’re good for the soul.

Cheers

Carl
