A woman doing yoga on her vacation in North Carolina got an unwelcoming surprise.

She reached to pet the dog she thought was licking her neck when she realized it was a black bear.

Kristin Jones said she was facing the lake, with her headphones on and did not notice the bear behind her.

Startled, Jones stumbled into the lake before grabbing her camera and snapping some photos.

Jones said the up-close and personal encounter won't stop her from doing yoga outdoors.
