Lake Clark Nat Park, Home of some huge Coastal Brown bears, and What an adventure this trip was. A tight, very close image, of a very attentive sow. Let me set the stage for ya.. Diffuse overcast skies, buggy midges swarming everywhere, and this lady decided to lay down and wait for the big v to push up the stream. Myself, another photographer and guide climbed down the bank, and got as low as we could, thinking a charge was coming , as the salmon began to push up stream, or should i say suicide run! She watched , and waited for the right moment... sure the charge came, but the waiting was like the old ketchup commercial.... Anticipation!! What a Gal she is!!
