Title: Brown Bear Katmai National Park September 11 2015 SUBMISSION Watermark
Description: Rainbow Bear! My husband was fishing and I was trying to get some underwater of the red sockeye salmon swimming when this bear popped out around the corner. We were at a rock in the middle of the lake when we first saw the bear. Many times the bear will just walk on by and that would be it. This bear wanted the exact spot we were in. It got closer and we quickly waded to the other side of the river. When we were safe on the other side I turned around to see where the bear was and he was right near where we were just minutes prior. I was shocked to see a beautiful rainbow above him and that he had already caught a salmon. You never know where adventure will take you and for me this one was pretty superb.
