Nat, nicely done, just enough contrast to clearly see the bear.

Sounds like a fun adventure - great shot :)

While base camped at the edge of the sea ice in Eclipse Sound, Nunavut, this beautiful and healthy bear followed his nose towards us with enough respectful curiosity to allow for his photograph to be taken so close we could hear his deep and powerful breath.
