Brown bear
Photographer: Dawn Wilson
Location: Katmai National Park
Story: 
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.
