This grizzly bear with a bloody snout looks off into the distance after gorging itself on salmon. A depth-of-field effect blurs the river in the background, drawing focus to the details of the bear, dripping wet with blood and water. Alaskan grizzly bears will eat dozens of pounds of salmon a day as they put on weight for the long winter months when they will be hibernating.
Red blood coats the whiskers on this wet bear’s bloody snout, giving it a Rudolph-like appearance. This photo was taken on the McNeil River in Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alaska.
