Relaxing brown bear

An adult brown bear seemed to relax and have fun in the Naknek lake while its cubs were resting not far by the lake shore. The sow bear was fishing for salmons for quite a while after which it seemed to be relax and playing in the lake. From my vantage point it felt the water was shallow and the bear was standing upright on two feet under the water and bobbing around. I decided to capture the vast landscape and cloud covered mountain across the lake.
