Adorable Moment Two Bear Cubs Hold Hands While Waiting For Momma To Catch Supper

This is the amazing moment a pair of bear cubs hold hands while they wait for their momma to catch them some supper in Alaska.

Isn't that adorable? The smaller bear held out his bear for his sibling to hold as they watched their mother hunt for salmon 

The pair are believed to be siblings, one larger than the other. They wait, watching their mother eagerly who was on the hunt for some salmon.

The bears watch closely as their mother hunts for fish in Lake Clark. Brown bears are quite common in Alaska

The photo was taken by Lewis Kemper, 62, of California at the Lake Clark National Park, he says:

Have you got anything yet, mum? The cubs watched attentively as their mum goes in for the kill

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

Drawn a blank: The mother bear splashes through the shallow water but came back empty-handed

“Although bears love their fish, most of them are omnivores and mainly eat plants and of course, a lot of grass.”

Salmon are one of the favourite things in the brown bear's diet and are rich in protein

“Bears are usually very calm, which makes them great animals to photograph.”

Mr Kemper said bears were incredibly calm animals, which makes them a joy to photograph

At one point, the cubs even joined their mother in an attempt to assist her in catching their supper.

Can we help? The cubs follow their mother's every move but they were all out of luck

Unfortunately, their attempts were to no avail, and the trio waddled off to find better hunting grounds.

The bear cubs trot off with their mother looking for a more profitable feeding ground

Better luck tomorrow, maybe: The cubs trudge off behind their mother. Lake Clark is 40 miles long and five miles wide
