When I saw this dead salmon in the creek, I was so sure I would be able to get my wide angle close-up that I decided I would wait as long as it took for a bear to show up. Well, along with a break for dinner, I had to wait 7 hours before this young adults showed up!
I placed my camera a couple feet from the fish with a 24mm lens, and focused on the salmon. I had a vision of the bear pulling the fish out of the water and practically filling the frame with his face! Unfortunately, the bear never saw the dead fish and managed to stay out of my focus range! These near misses keep me coming back day after day.
I checked back this a.m., and sure enough, the fish was gone.
