Fish for breakfast.

Published December 15th, 2012

Salmon is indispensable part of diet of northern wildlife.

Fish for breakfast. Seal and salmon.

Breakfast with the seals - first photo in this series, bears and foxes are coming next.

This is wild hunchback salmon caught by a seal in the Bogachevsky-Kronotsky estuary in Kronotsky Nature reserve. The same area that is home to fox family I call Evildoers (see other photos on my profile.).

A mother's treat.

Bear moms don't offer fish to their children. So the cubs are either waiting for leftovers or snatch the fish from their mom's paws.

Матухи не кормят рыбой своих детей. Медвежата доедают остатки материнской трапезы или просто вырывают добычу из материнских когтей.

Yammy salmon.

An unnamed fox caught salmon in shallow waters of the Bogachevsky-Kronotsky estuary in Kronotsky Nature reserve. The same area that is home to fox family I call Evildoers (see other photos on my profile).
