A wildlife photographer captured the adorable moment two bear cubs held hands – or should that be paws – as their mother hunted for some fish.
The viral picture shows the two cubs stood side-by-side as the smaller one paws at the bigger sibling’s back while they stare intently in the direction of their mom, waiting patiently for her to come back with some food.
The family were spotted by Lewis Kemper, 62, in Lake Clark National Park in Alaska. He couldn’t resist snapping a few pictures of them.
“I was standing about 20 feet away from the two cubs – bears in the area are used to human presence and do not mind us,” Lewis said.
“The two bears held hands for around 20 seconds, hoping their mother would bring them some dinner,” the California-based wildlife photographer added.
