Great picture!

Interesting tidbit: There's even a Snopes link for that one! Seems a lot of people have been forwarding the false story that this picture was the last ever taken by Japanese-born nature photographer Michio Hoshino. Hoshino did in fact die after being mauled by a bear in 1996, but not this one. According to Snopes, this photo was deliberately staged for a "last-photo hoax" contest.

I had no knowledge of the photographer or the tragic circumstances in which he died. After reading the above, I would appreciate if you would delete my post as I feel it is inappropriate. (The rofl)

It is just one of a series of "last photos" joke pictures. I doubt the bear one was specifically targeted at the photographer Michio Hoshino, just that people have co-opted it to fit the story.

I could do that if you really wanted, but like orlok says, it's doubtful that the creator of the original had Michio Hoshino in mind when he or she created the work. People can't help what fools do with their creations after they appear on the Internet. There's a whole cottage industry on the Internet dedicated to spreading lies, disinformation, and outright falsehoods. It's an interesting picture. Say the word and I'll delete your comment, but it's really not necessary.
