Young Grizzly

Young Grizzly

This is from one of my trips to Katmai NP and the falls.  I am working on backing up an old hard drive……this is one of 10,000 images that made me decide to do POTD……it may have never seen the light of day.  What  no one ever sees in the image….is the story.  At Brooks falls….young grizzlies have to be very afraid…older, much larger, dominant males will kill them.  This guy is 1/2 the size of the big males….but like most teens…..doesn’t realize the consequences.  Fortunately for him….he only got a few fish stolen from him and no battle scars.  The old dominant male who lost the prized perch at the classic spot of the falls…..stole a fish and I thought would kill him.  Fortunately…that didn’t happen and I look forward to going back to see if this beauty is top dog. sigma 300-800m @ 800mm.
