From the way he left her alone after she took the pic, it looks like he asked her to take it.

This was super scary!! She was super freaked! You can hear her fear when bear nibbles her leg. I think the selfie was to distract her herself of what really was happening!! ?

While the move was surely foolish and brave at the same time, it’s sheer luck that everyone came out unscathed from the incident.
