"Hallo Brown Bear" by Jess Bray (Australia) | While guiding small group photo tours for Chris Bray Photog. we spent the day ashore in HALLO BAY, KATMAI NAT'L PARK/PRESERVE, ALASKA. Watching bears catch salmon so close they splash you is the most exhilarating photog. exper. in my life. We spent a couple of hrs watching this guy fish for salmon; the beautiful foggy backdrop was a great contrasting background/even lighting.
We arrived at one of the watering holes in Etosha National Park in the late evening. Four Lions were devouring a large kudu that they killed. A pack of hyenas appeared from the bush nearby attracted by the smell of blood and food for them. What ensued was a fight for the dead kudu between 4 female lions and 16 hyenas. Needless to say, in the end the hyenas won and got the prized kudu.
