A surprising guest turned up while Matthew Garrity was kayaking on Hemlock Lake south of Rochester, New York.
A black bear was swimming by, making its way across the lake, and Garrity caught some of it on video.
Garrity told the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle he was relaxing on the lake when he saw something swimming. He couldn't make out what it was, so he paddled out to investigate.
"I heard it breathing," Garrity said. "I realized what it was as soon as I heard this big gasping, grunting sound of it breathing.
"I just tried to get my kayak drifting at the same speed," Garrity said. "I put my paddle down, got my camera out and started taking the video just enough to see the front of my kayak aim towards the front of the bear. I realized I better back up."
Garrity put his camera down, picked up his oars, and gave the bear some space.
"I got a little nervous, so the video is pretty short because as soon as I saw the front of my kayak come into focus I said OK, that's enough,” Garrity told WHAM.
But the 14-second video, uploaded to Facebook Saturday, caught enough of the moment and has over 280,000 views.

A yellow Labrador retriever has a quirky way of swimming in the pool and his owner caught it on video.
Cody is a 2-year-old pup who loves the water. A video recorded Thursday showed a new way he likes to enjoy it.
"Cody loves it when I splash out pool water," owner Tina Conrad told Today. "He tries to catch it with his mouth. And then the other night when we were swimming, I raised my hand and he just suddenly stood upright. I thought it was really funny, so I grabbed my phone and filmed him."

A Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, man noticed his husky having fun playing in her water bowl in May, and captured it on video.
Kent Duryee said in a Facebook post he was grilling outside in the company of his Siberian husky, Maya.
"I was smoking a couple of baby back racks while Maya softly blew bubbles in her water dish," Duryee wrote, adding that his other Siberian husky, Pearson, was a little confused by what Maya was doing.
"Pearson doesn't get the whole bubble thing but he's keenly interested in the ribs," Duryee wrote in the May 31 post.
The Facebook video has been shared over 19,000 times and has over 960,000 views on YouTube.

A video of one woman's emotional reunion with her dog has been spreading across the Onternet.
Maria Macacioa returned to her parents' home in Markinch, Scotland, Sunday to be reunited with her dog, Sandy.
Today.com reported that Macacioa went through a divorce safter a marriage she said was abusive, and left her ex-husband with whom she had been living in Oceanside, California.
"I decided to move back to America because I suppressed a lot of feelings and I had to face them," she said in a Facebook live video. "I was very lost and depressed."
While in the U.S., Macacioa works in Smithtown, New York, as a nanny.
Sandy, a 4-year-old golden retriever mix, searched and sniffed his owner's scent all over the house, finding Macacioa in a bedroom behind a bed.
He barked and howled in excitement as Maria cried happy tears.
Macacioa will go back to Smithtown, but said she would never take Sandy back to the U.S. because of the stress he had while traveling by plane.
"My parents have given him an amazing life and a beautiful home to live in," she said.

Trent Houdek was visiting the Wildlife World Zoo in Phoenix, Arizona, Saturday when he and his friends approached a monkey enclosure.
Houdek had his GoPro with him and used it to capture his visit.
At the exhibit, one monkey, which Houdek said is a Schmidt Gideon Monkey, took interest in the portable camera.
Houdek's friends can be heard telling him to give the monkey the camera.
When the monkey extends its hand through the cage, Houdek relents, and the monkey takes the GoPro.
The result is an almost three minute of video -- picked up by Mashable -- of the monkey playing with the camera.
The monkey had fun with the camera, holding it as if to take selfies upside down and sideways, and licking the camera to figure out what exactly it was.
At one point, the monkey can be seen tapping the camera as if it is trying to get something out of it.
"What, at the time, was a stressful couple of hours turned into some great footage of a monkey's interest in the camera," Houdek said in a caption of the video.
Watch the monkey play with a GoPro in the video below.
