Bear With Me

"Anxious, aggressive and hoping to get a better angle at the leaping salmon, this bear reached out a bit too far and lost his footing," says Your Shot photographer Taylor Albright, who caught this moment in Brooks Falls, Alaska. "Splashing into the pool below unharmed, he eventually climbed back into his spot to wait for the next chance at a salmon." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
