Here you go . . .

Alaska Brown Bear at Brooks River Falls - about 2-1/2 hours of patience until I got the right fish at the right angle to the right bear!
Beautifully done.

Hi Folks.
Oh no another compelling thread thoroughly littered with great shots.
Well done triggermike, that has to be the quintessential bear fishing shot.
It's unlikely that I will be able to contribute photos to this thread, if I come across a carnivore in the wild here (UK) I'm likely to be the slightly rounded body trying not to be the slowest runner, that's right isn't it you don't have to be the fastest, but you do have to not be the slowest!  ;D  ;D ;D

Cheers, Graham.

Alaska Brown Bear at Brooks River Falls - about 2-1/2 hours of patience until I got the right fish at the right angle to the right bear!

2.5 hours of waiting for a shot. That's what being a dedicated photographer is all about! Well done!

It was one of those things - travelled all day to get to Alaska, another float plane trip to get to where these bears are, a mile hike to the falls, 1-1/2hrs waiting and only 1 or 2 salmon jump, leave the falls for a while, then determined to get that shot I hike back to the falls and wait another hour, it begins to drizzle rain, then that fish jumps! Check the viewfinder then feel satisfied leaving!

Thanks all!

BTW, took this 10 years or so ago, Canon 10D with 70-300 IS lens, tripod set to be on bear, using cable release so I could watch falls for jumping fish - if you look thru viewfinder or use LCD, you will surely miss the fish because once its in the viewfinder it is almost impossible to squeeze of shot in time!

You know how someone invented the Lightning Trigger several years ago because no one is fast enough to catch daytime lightning in viewfinder? Someone needs to invent the Fish Trigger!  ;D

Another carnivore in the wild, an African wild dog crossing water in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. Image with a Canon 1DX Mark 2 (beta) and EF 500L f4 IS ii. S/s 1/1250sec at f4, iso 200. 
And thanks for the comments on my ealier leopard post ScottF, MrFF and DSLR dummy. I am not too good at figuring out how to work with the windows for comments and responses on this forum I am afraid.
Great bear shot also Triggermike - like the shape made by the bears jaws!
Cheers
Grant

That wild dog in the water is amazing! Okavango Delta seems like perhaps the best place in Africa for wildlife photography, though on my income I doubt I will ever see any part of Africa.

Thanks Mr Fotofool, also Click
Quite a number of great places in Africa that are pretty good for wildlife photography, aside from the Okavango...also places in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania to name some of the best regions.

Really nice capture Grant. Great to see the wild dog numbers increasing across southern Africa. Have seen them on both trips I have made there in the last couple of years (Zambia and Botswana). Keep posting.
Cheers,
Phillip

A couple pf carnivore images that come quickly to hand off the hard drive. Taken with 1DX the Grizzly bear with the hangover was in Alaska, (it was a good night) ...and the snarling leopard was in Sri Lanka and the howling coyote was in Banff, Canada long after sunset.

Hi Falcnr.
Nice series of shots, particularly like the first one the title fits really well.

Cheers, Graham.
