Brown bear
Photographer: Dawn Wilson
Location: Katmai National Park
Katmai National Park was an amazing place to photograph bears. The bears were active, focused on their activities and very animated. This male brown bear was fishing in a creek during the salmon run. He came up empty handed as water ran off of his face. His facial expression seems to show his disappointment.
