A charging brown bear on the hunt
IF TONY HAKE HAD BEEN A SALMON, he might have had reason to worry. “It was disconcerting to see a monstrous brown bear running straight at us,” says Hake, who photographed this charge on Moraine Creek in Alaska’s Katmai National Park and Preserve. His guide was reassuring: “As long as there’s salmon, they don’t care about people.” That proved true. During a full day with these top-tier predators, says Hake, this one was quite accommodating. “He was a pretty poor fisherman, so we got to see him try multiple times.” This shot earned an Honorable Mention in our 2020 photo contest.
