"Hey are you going to eat all that yourself?" Sometimes they disagree over who gets the fish.
If you look carefully you can count eight bears in this picture. Right place right time there were twenty different bears fishing in this stretch of river while we were taking pictures as fast as we could.
And then the other guy said.........
But more often they seem friendly toward each other like these two guys
It must have been a really funny joke!!
Or even just pausing to take a drink.
If you get further off the track to one of the fly-in fishing lodges the view can be remarkable and the bears even more so.
Often you'll see bears looking for salmon along the side of the river.
But if you're a salmon, watch out when one spots you.
There's nothing they like more for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
But they do prefer salmon. More of a meal don't you think.
Most people don't realize they are not too distantly related to dogs and like dogs they eat bees. Look carefully, then see the next picture.
Inland you can see the bears fishing at Brooks Falls
It can be pretty intense when a grizzly bear is coming right at you even when you are sure all he wants is a fish in the water.
Yup, that's a bee in his mouth.
