Four bear cubs climb up a tree for safety as an alpha male approaches them. Fearing for her cub's lives the mother bear urged them to scramble up the nearest tree trunk while she kept watch on the ground. The scene was captured by photographer Lauri Tammik in woods in north Finland.
Mama bear and her cub. Her face, omg, I've never seen a bear with such a beautiful face. Like, the color difference and her smiling at her baby and that way she's looking at them as if they're the most precious thing in the world. *melt*
