Great capture of the intense action of bear, salmon and flying water, Bob!  The bear is totally focused on the prize - and those lethal claws are fully extended ready for the catch.

Outstanding action shot. Love the intense posture of the bear with it's intent stare and extended claws. The splashing water does a great job of highlighting it's power.
