This beautiful lady decided to sit down and help herself to a fresh catch for lunch. Notice that she needed to add her foot for an added hold on her dinner. Anybody notice the little speck on the right directly behind her head. When we printed the image, it turns out it's a mosquito. Gotta love Canon and it's lens quality.

This is a fantastic shot, you can almost hear her chomping down. I was booked to go on a grizzly watch this year but it was cancelled due to the weather and unfortunately it was the last one of the year. If all goes well I will be there for sure next year.

Behind The Lens

Location
Valdez, AK
Time
Some time between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m.
Lighting
This was just as the sun was starting it's downward decent. Summer in Alaska is a brilliant time to shoot.
Equipment
Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III, Lens was Canon 800mm definitely with a tripod. No flash.
Inspiration
After fishing and feeding 4 hungry cubs this mama bear finally took a minute to enjoy some dinner of her own. She put some distance between herself and the cubs before eating, otherwise, they kept coming to take her catches and she would always let them.
Editing
There is a little sharpening, some tone correction but other than that the image is as shot.
In my camera bag
All Canon, all day. 1Ds Mark III 1DX 5D Mark III 7D Canon 24-70mm Canon 28-135mm Canon 800mm Canon Macro EF 100mm Canon EF 16-35mm Canon EF 70-200mm Canon Extender EF 1.4x III
Feedback
Be patient. Be patient. Be patient. You'll be doing a lot of waiting, studying and scouting. Talk to the locals, they always know where the action is happening. When you shoot wildlife, never leave until they do and always expect the unexpected.
