Thanks Octavio, it's so easy to shoot with long lenses, but refreshing to use other lenses providing a different perspective and be more inclusive.

The inclusion of the habitat, especially the distant horizon and sky, adds so much to this one Steve. Lovely image!

This would be a gorgeous landscape shot even without the bear! The bear couldn't be much better placed in the scene than it is. Love this.
