Black bear with a pink salmon on a rock, Gribbell Island Creek, Verney Pass, British Columbia. Photographing the dark bear in the low light required a very high ISO.
Yes, arctangent, their coats thicken up as winter approaches.
Re DycasStudio remark. I find it easier to shoot active wildlife handholding my camera than using a tripod (hence the high ISO), but I did on occasion use a tripod when the animals were less active.
