Spirit Cub

A SPIRIT CUB!  We were so excited after spending a long, cold, rainy day along a river hoping to see a Spirit Bear, but not actually seeing one, when we came out to get back to the boat, and saw a Black Bear Mother along the shore with her one black and one white cub.

 

This image was shot at ISO 20,000 (it was really that dark outside and I just wanted to get the shot).  This was the first Spirit Bear I had ever seen, so I just wanted to get the shot. Luckily with some time, and some new software, I was able to make this image somewhat useable.
