Dispute by Nate-Zeman Dispute by Nate-Zeman
An Alaskan Brown Bear stands his ground over a sea otter (on the bottom right under the bear) as a larger bear tries its best to get a piece of the prize.

This isn't the same female bear as my "Battle at Katmai" photos. Once this skinny bear had the otter about 5 other bears made attempts at him. It was pretty amazing to see him stand his ground despite his small size. A morning I will most definitely never forget.

Did he get to finish his catch? Or did he eventually get bullied off?

This is a once in a lifetime capture...you are so blessed to have witnessed this :)

Awesome shot as always. A few questions for you though.

1) How far were you from those bears, and was it considered dangerous at where you were?

2) Aside from your trusty 5D (I assume), which lens did you usually use for such shots?

3) Do you usually turn on the multiple shots function when shooting wild animals?

Thanks and keep shooting! ;)

Wow, what a brave bear! Either that, or he must have been really hungry! I know I would be running for the hills if a grizzly came after me like that, even if I was a bear too. Or a Rhino. Or a dinosaur, LoL.
