Congratulations to Rimma Aronov from the USA, who wins our September 2016 Photo of the Month event. Rimma receives our $100 prize with this action packed Grizzly Bear image taken at Lake Illiamna, Alaska.
Rimma commented on the picture: "The experience of watching the grizzly bears fish in a shallow creek swarming with salmon was fascinating, even more so because it was new for me and long awaited for. After observing the bears for several days it became apparent that the style of fishing varies greatly from bear to bear. This particular bear has outdone them all. Once committed to an attack, he was jumping up in the air, lifting all four paws from the ground, then slamming the water with all his impressive mass of at least 400lb, creating a huge fountain of water with some of the stunned salmon caught in it. What a sight that was!."
Rimma wins our $100 prize.
The winner's picture as well as the top finalists will be published in the November 2016 issue of WPM in high definition – do not miss it!
