2023—Caught In the Act

Our first day shooting on Kodiak was a great introduction to a great week of shooting. When we encountered the mama bear that we’d met last May along with her three cubs and they accepted us immediately, going about their business undeterred by our presence, we knew it would be a great week. One of the three cubs used its paws to keep this pink salmon under control in the water, then it reached down and grabbed the doomed fish in its jaws, looking over with a look as if it were just caught in the act. I always love it when a subject looks straight into my lens, regardless of what expression is on its face, and, in fact, I did catch it in the act…of catching a fish.
