Great capture

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo is taken at Kurile Lake, Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia. Kurile Lake is the 2nd largest area to find Brown bears in the world
Time
The photo was taken sometime between late-morning and noon
Lighting
Natural light from the strong sun that day. I got really tanned that day :)
Equipment
The photo was shot with Canon 5D Mark III using a Tamron 150-600 lens (my favorite setup)
Inspiration
I was tracking the brown bear and wanted to capture a close-up image of the bear pulling out a salmon fish from the water. However, the salmon had other ideas and was successful in escaping the clutches of the bear. I like the sad look on the bear who immediately started searching for the next fish to catch (spoiler alert: that fish was caught)
Editing
A little cropping of the full image for better composition
In my camera bag
My travel bag is always ready for the next photo shooting. It contains my Canon 5D Mark III and four lenses: Canon's 16-35 F/2.8 for landscape and night photography, Tamron's 24-70 F/2.8, 70-200 and 150-600. In addition, I use Peak Design's carbon tripod which is really light and compact.
Feedback
Respect your subject environment. You are a guest so act as such. Also, patience is very important. You might not get the frame of your dreams at the first, second or even tenth click. When you are in nature, accept that it cannot be predicted at 100%
