Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alaska. This is a large male brown bear. The salmon is probably about 20-inches long, and the bear's claws are about 5 to 6 inches long.
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 at f/4 1/800 second at ISO 400.
