Brown Bear Catching Fish at Brooks Falls, Alaska © Anton LittauAnton Littau serves up a daily picture, and we delved into his archives for this picture of a brown bear catching a fish at Brooks Falls, Katmai National Park & Preserve in Alaska. The web site features the work of a number of photographers, and the daily pictures are gathered together into monthly galleries, twenty five to date. Our regular niggle: some gallery navigation method that reduces repeated mouse clicking and back button shuffling is needed.

Another photographer with a Katmai collection is QT Luong on his TerraGalleria.com web site, where he gives away a few trade secrets about taking pictures of the bears! More visitor information is available from the official National Park web site, and John William Uhler's unofficial web site has other useful information, including a map.
