Regrann from @darylbalfourwildphotos - Feast of the Fishing Bears. A North American brown bear, aka coastal brown bear or grizzly bear, playing with his food like a naughty kid during the bears' time of plenty, the annual spawning season when rivers are flush with salmon returning to the headwaters of the rivers in which they hatched years before. It's an opportunity for the bears to gorge on the fatty roe (eggs) and flesh of these nutritious fish before the onset of winter and their long months of hibernation and fasting. During this time of plentiful food the bears seem totally focused on the salmon & uninterested in their human observers, allowing close approaches by photographers for images such as this.
