The relationship between mother and child is the most important any of us will ever experience. Youngsters are so innocent and naive about life that they need the guiding and caring hand that only a mother can provide. Yet, in modern day civilizations, we humans are less aware of the dangers of the wild. For these bears, the world truly is the survival of the fittest. That's what makes these photographs of bears and their cubs so special. The love is so real and so necessary it just fills your soul with a profound sense of wonder. Plus, they just look so darn cute!
I hope you enjoy these selection of 25 mother and baby bears.
Parenting is much easier with two.
But mother bears the brunt.
Your children are forever a part of you.
You'll never let them go.
You teach them about nature, about life.
Sometimes they can be a right pain in the...
But you know how to get your revenge.
You are suspicious of anyone who gets too close to them.
Because family is the most beautiful thing.
Eventually their soft nibbles start to pinch, but you don't mind (much).
They can be such nosey parkers.
And they are always getting under your feet.
Finally taking those firsts steps is the greatest adventure.
You inspire them, saying: "One day, this will all be yours."
But in the meantime, they need hours of cuddles.
Those early days give you so much love.
But, a bit of playful resistance is only part of growing up.
In the end, they will always follow in your footsteps.
Or, if not, you know what's best for them.
Witnessing their first successful performances is a proud moment.
The Sun will never set on immortal moments like these.
Still, they will get themselves into some real holes.
And even take you aback with their bold audacity.
They will always be a part of your waking, and even sleeping, life.
When they need it, you say: "Don't talk. Put your head on my shoulder."
