This is an excellent capture of this bear, Michelle - the reflection is a huge bonus. I know the shooting condition for this and am amazed at the clarity of this shot. You don't have any tips, do you?
Good luck with this personal favorite.

Thank you all! Nikki, as you know, the dirty glass and reflections are the hardest. I got lucky that the glass seemed very clean, and there was only a bit of red reflecting that I was able to eliminate in PS. I also used Topaz to help define the details a bit more. I was so happy that he was out and it was a good natural light day outside - very cloudy which also cut down on glare.
