Two large male brown bears start a fight over who gets the best fishing spot. The fight was not serious, as there were so many great places to fish. Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alaska.
Brown Bears have coats often tipped with a lighter color, giving a "grizzled" appearance. They also have a large lump of muscle above their shoulders. That muscle gives them great strength in their forelimbs. The Grizzly Bear is a sub-species of the Brown Bear. Brown Bears can weigh up to about 1500 pounds and can run at speeds of 35 miles per hour.
Technical: Canon 1D Mark II 8-megapixel camera, Canon 500 mm f/4 L IS lens plus 1.4x TC = 700 mm at f/5.6 1/320 second at ISO 400. Slight crop.
