Brown Bear – A Mighty Monarch

Brown Bear

A Mighty Monarch

Stepping into the briskly flowing river, I had my eyes 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.

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