Polar Bear Cubs Leave Their Den For First Time To Play In Snow

Get ready for some of the most paw-dorable pictures you've ever seen. Brian Matthews captured these amazing, rare and beautiful pictures near Churchill, northern Canada of polar bear cubs leaving their den with their momma for the very first time to play around in the snow. The pictures clearly capture the nerves the cubs feel of leaving their den for the first time, gazing adoringly at their mom and staying close to her while exploring this beautiful new world. 

As The Irish Sun reports, Matthews said: "It was very humbling to be able to see something that very, very few people get to see. The cubs were really interested in the world in general, they were investigating and playing in the snow, smelling trees, looking around and generally getting their bearings."

He continued: "They seemed quite confident running about and playing in the snow, as long as they weren't too far from their mother. You can see in the photos of them all lying together how big these tiny cubs are going to grow up to be. It was just absolutely amazing to see the cubs playing in front of us, only about 50 metres away, and not at all fazed or spooked that we were there. It's heartening to see the positive side of polar bear conservation work."

Only after they calmed down a bit did the mother bear go and have a big ol' nap, her kiddos continuing to play around in the snow next to her. We hope we will get to see many, many more pictures of animals loving their natural habitats, and that this was the pawfect, smile-inducing start to your morning that you were hoping for.

Awwdorably Wholesome Bears Waving Hello

There's a reason that people love bears as much as they do. The myth of the cuddly bear runs strong in our society. I mean, look at them. How can these huge bear-hugging animals be in any way dangerous? They were obviously designed for hugs. Cleary. How can you even argue with that? 

They're the cutest, the sweetest, and they're infinitely polite. Look at them waving! Just look at them, we dare your heart not to melt. It's impossible. It's a total dream to have a bear wave at us (and also give us a hug, but we'll settle for a wave for now). The cuteness is simply overwhelming.

Canadian Photographer Captures Stunning Pics Of Polar Bears Frolicking in a Meadow

These images were taken in 2015, by Canadian photographer Dennis Fast, they have seen gone viral after appearing in Modern Met Magazine and you're about to see why!

Stunning images of polar bears frolicking in a vibrant pink field of fireweed. Seriously, what can top that? the striking contrast of the white polar bear against a sea of pink flowers.

The photos were taken in Northern Canada's Hudson Bay, near lodges run by Churchill Wild in Manitoba. Fast tells My Modern Met, "It's not just their color that makes them a favorite target of my camera. They have a slow, ambling gait as they drift about looking for anything that moves. It looks like they don't have a care in the world, and that there is nothing they are afraid off. It's not arrogance, exactly, but a quiet confidence that we often respect in humans and that translates well to the polar bear."
