Brown Bear – A Mighty Monarch

A Mighty Monarch

     Stepping briskly into the forcefully flowing river, I had my eyes fervently focused on reaching a shallow sandbar.  Once there I set up the camera, lens and tripod.  All around in the flow, there was a bounty of spawning and dying salmon.  The setting simply screamed at being an exceptional place for a hungry Brown Bear to dine.

     With time, the tall grass in the background magically began to move, yet the undulating gesticulations were not orchestrated by the wind.  I waited with absolute anticipation.

     In a heartbeat the motion’s author became transparent … a mighty monarch joined me in the waterway.  His sole intent was firmly fixed on the banquet that lay before him.
