I didn't say fish eye lens view :)

This one from a couple of years ago. I was working it for a possible print.

D4, AF-S 80-400

Everything about this shot is good..
Thanks, Bob. Even a blind squirrel finds and acorn once in a while :)
Excellent! The curve of that unfortunate salmon adds the finishing touch.
Thanks, Ann. Yes this shot is all about that poor fish. As a matter of fact I've titled this one "Humpy" which is the Alaskan term for pink salmon due to their backs becoming humped when they morph during the spawn.
Stunning image! It will make an impressive print!
Thanks, Karen. This one will do well on metal.
Awesome picture, one day I will go.
Thanks, Mike. They're just a plane ride away.
That fish have a bad day!...
Indeed the poor fish is in for a rough couple of minutes. The bears don't bother killing them before they eat. At least this one is already spawned out so had fulfilled its mission before being caught.
I think I remember this one from a couple years ago. I especially like the clarity of the fish's eye.
Thanks, Mike. Yes the fishes eye was my point of focus... Well at least it was in the focal plane :D I've posted some similar shots in the past but I don't think this is one of them.

Those water drops are amazing too--they really give the sense of action!
Thanks, Nick. Yes the water adds a dynamic aspect to these shots of the bears fishing.
spectacular shot Dan with amazing clarity and 3d look
Thanks, Randy. For some reason I find that 3D look that we see on screen is hard to replicate in print. But IMO it comes out better on metal than any other print media.
