Interesting crop, and very good choice of DOF. The most striking feature to me is the texture of his fur, visible thanks to the clarity. Good job!

Composition, light and texture. And those bear paws/claws! I can feel you framing and focusing this sweet moment.

He's about to reach up and do a sun salutation, right? And then another. It'll be like deja vu all over again.
Actually, I imagine he's looking into a pool of water at his own reflection, a furry white Narcissus. Nice detail and tones.

Something very pleasing about this - the pose of the bear, his curiousity, and the very muted tones yet hints of color. I like it.

Excellent black-and-white I wish you could have gotten the whole bear in the picture however.

I really like your choice of composition here, and the tight crop. Not sure if other people are commenting that you shouldn't have cropped his back out, but I think it is more impactful like this.
