Here's one from our Peru tour a couple of years ago.  At Chaparri Ecolodge they rehabilitate this species.  While we were photographing a cub which was inside an enclosure, we turned around to find this wild bear checking us out.  The light was a bit harsh but it was thrilling nonetheless.  From my angle there was some out of focus foreground vegetation on the right which is why I cropped it as I did.

He was really curious about you to climb way up there Nate. Quite a character! Quite a capture! ps. I haven't been active on nature photography forums for some time, nice to see you still doing the tours and taking great photos.
