Zen Grizzly

While visiting Katmai National Park in Alaska in anticipation of the annual salmon run, pro photographer Cesar Aristeiguieta watched this 6-year-old grizzly sow sniff at the water near the famed Brooks Falls for two days before she successfully caught the first salmon of the year. He writes, “On the morning I captured this image, the salmon were moving up the Brooks River to the falls. This bear waited quietly on the rock, in a very zen posture.” The California resident used a Nikon D4 with a 200-400mm lens.
