bears hold hands

The bear family were spotted by Lewis Kemper, 62,in Lake Clark National Park in Alaska. He couldn’t resist snapping a few pictures of them. 

His pictures show the two cubs stood side-by-side as the smaller one paws at the bigger sibling’s back while they wait patiently for their mum to come back with some grub.

Lewis said: ‘I was leading a photography tour around Lake Clark in Alaska, earlier this month, when I spotted a female and her two cubs waiting for her to come back with something to eat. 

‘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.

‘The two bears held hands for around 20 seconds, hoping their mother would bring them some dinner but unfortunately, she came back fishless.
