Alaskan Brown Bear Catching Salmon Pictures

 Alaskan Brown Bear Catching Salmon

Just returned from Silver Salmon Creek Lodge, Lake Clark National Park Alaska. Had planned this as a late season trip for one reason, to see Brown Bears up close actively feeding on salmon and I was not disappointed. The weather however did prove to be a real challenge. Had to extend the original seven day trip to ten and ultimately had two good photo days. Most days included driving rain, with winds at times of forty knots or more.

On one of the two good weather days, this sow decided to stand after catching a nice sized Silver Salmon. This was completely unexpected and produced one of the best images of the trip. Normally a Brown Bear will pin a salmon to the creek bed bite it, then walk off up the bank.

Thank you to David Coray and the staff of Silver Salmon Creek Lodge for a great trip!
