Description
At the base of Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park Alaska the bears congregate for lunch. Their techniques range from standing on the falls to catch salmon in mid flight to lunging on top of the salmon before they jump up the falls. This active bear was lunging for a snack and came up with a catch. Sharp claws can spear the fish and immobilize it for the bear to begins eating ritual.
