A sow and her cub cuddling up for a nap on a rocky river beach in Alaska. The pair are taking a break from fishing in the McNeil river for salmon. The pair are cuddling to regain warmth lost through their wet fur.
Young bears have an exceptionally close bond with their mothers, who will teach them all the life skills they need to survive in the Alaskan wilderness.
