This is a grizzly bear sitting in a pool in the Glendale river in Knight Inlet. The fish that you see are returning Pink Salmon. On a good return the river is black with fish. This is important, because our coastal Grizzly Bears rely on the protein rich salmon to put on enough wait to make it through their winter hibernation.
Not much to say except that Angus (guide and owner) got a great sequence of photos. Even thought there are many whales in our viewing area it is still hard to be in the right place at the right time and get a good photo especially when you are the one operating the boat and that is a full time job.
