Michio Hoshino, a photographer known for his pictures of bears and other wildlife, was mauled to death by a brown bear on the Kamchatka Peninsula in eastern Russia. He was in his mid-40′s and lived in Fairbanks, Alaska.
This was the last photo he took.
jesus fucking christ
I honestly love this photo so damn much. Because it’s like, he knew he was going to die, or at least be very injured. But being a photographer at heart, he still got that last shot.
This has been popping up in my Tumblr feed quite a bit recently, and normally I ignore it, but its bugging me to much to let it go again…

(And yes, I see the irony of posting an Internet source to refute this urban legend, but Snopes is a reputable source.)
Damn, I wish he had been in DAY OF THE DOCTOR as well!
