16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Head Spins

This is a moment I have wanted to capture for a long time. When the Alaskan Brown Bears are fishing for Salmon at the Brooks river waterfall, some chose to stand on the edge of the falls trying to grab the salmon in their mouth as the jump up the falls and other like to fish in the water pools at the base of the falls. Every time they dive under water in the attempts to grab a salmon, when they reemerge they shake their heads vigorously to dry off.
