This ‘action’ shot of a spirit bear or Kermode bear getting tucked in to a pink salmon was photographed here on the BC coast a short while back. Quite often these bears will just come down to the river, grab a salmon and head back in to the bush to eat it, which is what this guy did on a number of occasions throughout the day, but after a while he started to just stay down by the river to eat his catch. More spirit bears can be seen in the spirit bear gallery and you can learn more about spirit bears in the article I wrote for ‘In Focus’ magazine. (click here – capturing the spirit).
