Brown bear eating hooligan

Brown bear eating hooligan

This brown bear is fishing for
hooligan on the Chilkoot River. It was overcast, and
late in the day, so to get this image I was shooting
at 1/40 sec. Thus, the bear's movement and camera shake are
evident. But, it is the first bear I have seen this year.

Canon EOS 350D ,Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM
1/40s f/5.6 at 600.0mm iso1600
Canon EF 2X II Extender full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

You can tell by the width of this one skull that this is one BIG bear. This has to be over 1000 pounds. Very nice capture of a big bore.

Boy, those hooligans have predators coming at them from all sides! This bear looks pretty well fed. Great shot! Sandy

I think the key work is shake, Excellent composition. I'd be shaking with excitement and glee while scared.
