Shaking like  a wet dog (bear)
12-SEP-2006 BJ Ramsay

Shaking like a wet dog (bear)

Russian River, Kenai Peninsula, AK

Just got in after a LONGGGG trip home from Alaska. More pics and comments to come
after a good nights sleep!

What a spectacular place, hopefully some of my posts over the next few days will do it justice.

This shot is of a bear called Gimpy by the local fishermen.More on that story later.
Gimpy here was being very particular which salmon he was going to eat next and when he didn't catch one after diving into the water he'd ocassionally shake just like a wet dog.

Nikon D200 ,Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF
1/400s f/6.3 at 165.0mm iso500 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original
