Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?

This bear appears to be looking at her own mirror image or even drinking water. That last part won’t be true, as it is salt water, which they seem to dislike to drink just as we do. This year I did see one of them drink water, but that came from a meltwater pool on the ice, which, most likely, consists largely of freshwater (or maybe a little brackish).
