This composition has lovely vivid colors in the wooded greens that is a perfect complementary setting for this lone hunting bear. Only this bear is not the wild, untamed bear found in a natural woodland setting but a cute, cuddly 'domesticated' teddy bear. His pose at the water's edge looking into the reflective surface of the water in search for salmon is akin to his wild, untamed cousins - the black and brown bears. Because this bear is not of the ferocious kind there presence in the wild is endangered because the cute, cuddly nature has most observers walk right on up, pick them up, hug them, squeeze them, call them George and take them right home:-) Lighting, focus, and composition all all excellent in this photo. Great job.

Amazing color and contrast. It's a small nitpick, but I would of liked to of seen the bear turned so he's looking more into the frame, his glance seems to lead me out of the photo.
