Great capture D!
The stop action, details, white balance, exposure and sharp focus are all spot on here.
Nice to see your work again this year.
Fine techs behind your lens girl!

An amazing scene. I love the angle showing the fascinated eyes of these bears. The colors are natural, and you've framed this well with sufficient negative space.

Donna,
A spectacular stop action picture of the Grisly Bears lined up above the Brook falls waiting for the Salmon to leap up the fall into their waiting jaws all four of them their eyes fixed on the leaping Salmon. I'm glad at least one of them was satisfied with it's catch. Beautiful composition, framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.
Susan

Great name and beautiful presentation of these bears that are fishing for one salmon. How
will they divide the catch?

Great colors, details on the animals and the water with a small waterfalls.

I love the presentation and I put the location on my bucket list to visit soon.
Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks so much. I hope you can make it there. They do not share the catch with the exception of Mama bear. She had 2 cubs off to the side. She would catch a fish then take it to them where they would all share. She was by far the most prolific at catching as she had 3 bellies to fill. :). Thanks again for the review.

Your photo is amazing. The stop in action is perfect. The rushing water sand the animals seem frozen. Your photo is excellent focused and exposed and has good depth. I enjoy the sharpness of detail and the realism of color and light. The Bears are expertly placed within the frame. The photo mis perfect composed.

"Do you know sushi, like I know sushi ..."

The position and stance of the darker bear gives me the impression that he is the coordinator. He looks as though he is say who gets this fish - "OK Fellas ... If we work together we all get fed. So, you on the right, this ones yours!" - Excellent story telling ability for sure from a very creative presentation.

This ones a gem I love it ... Bob P B-))

    Thank you so much Bob. Actually, the dark bear was the subservient one who waited his turn to get a fish. I think he is a 3 year old, first year without Mama. I?m so glad you like the image. It was a joy to shoot. Thank you for the review and the generous rating. :)

What an amazing nature capture! In the right place at the right time. I love the way the three bears are all delicately aligned and focused on the fish. Was there a bear fight? The water flowing is well captured and the clarity is great. A wonderful photography moment!

    Thank you so much. And yes, actually there was. The middle bear of the 3 tried to take mama bear?s fishing spot when she had left to take a fish to her cubs. She fought her off but, she came back and stood in the middle. The first time she caught a fish the mama bear and the bear on the other side chased her away and took her fish. It was quite the scene. No one was hurt but the pecking order was firmly established. :). Thank you for the review and generous rating. It is much appreciated.
Comment from Glena Jessee-King


This is an outstanding capture of the stunning scene bears fishing and the beautiful falls and waters. Catching the bears in a row, as you did, with their focus on the one fish is outstanding and this deserves a "6". The one you did where the fish is going in the mouth deserves even better. Thanks for sharing and such outstanding work of such a stunning mystical precious and adorable scene.

Comment from Shadow catcher


Great capture of this bruin foursome with their eyes on the fishy prize heading their way. Very well composed and nicely balanced photo, excellent focus and depth of field. Must have been fantastic to have witnessed this in person and have been able to photograph it!
