Black Bear in the Fjord

We were sailing in Tracy Arm Fjord and on the steep wall of rock we saw a black bear making its way along the water. I took a variety of shots, but I really wanted to get the bergy bit in the frame with the black bear to give a sense of scale to the photograph. The bear's color is brown but it is a Black Bear.
