WOW BEAUTIFUL!!!
I must ask you, and or say...I know what a great photographer you are, and thus said you had your setting done correctly.
The black bear shows as blue, as you already know ;)
I took some awesome images of Ravens 2 years ago, and of course they are black as well, but turned out a deep indigo blue. I ended up turning them into B&W, because I thought that I had messed up. Thus said, how then does their feathers/fur turn blue, other than black?

The sheen on the fur is great - I assume this bear is in tip-top condition.
