Many people think that wildlife is such a ferocious and threatening thing. However, there are many a time that it offers unbelievably tender sightings. Such a sight to behold is these two bear cubs holding hands. Wildlife photographer Lewis Kemper was in the right place at the right time to capture these two cubs on his camera.
Kemper is a California based 62-year-old photographer, and her was in Lake Clark National Park when he spotted the cubs holding hands while they watched their mom trying to hunt some dinner. In an interview, Lewis notes: “I was leading a photography tour around Lake Clark in Alaska, earlier this month, when I spotted a female and her two cubs waiting for her to come back with something to eat. I was standing about 20 feet away from the two cubs – bears in the area are used to human presence and do not mind us.”
Although the young ones were impatient for their dinner, the mother came back empty handed, when the photographer went on to say, “The two bears held hands for around 20 seconds. They hoped their mother would bring them some dinner but unfortunately, she came back fishless.” Wildlife experts note that bears have only a 10% success rate in hunting.
Although most bears love fish, their diet mostly includes plants. In his interview, Lewis goes on to add, “Although bears love their fish, most of them are omnivores and mainly eat plants and of course, a lot of grass.
” Talking more about these tender sightings, these cubs weren’t the only ones captured holding ‘hands.’ There was also a story from a South African beach where a couple spotted two penguins holding flippers, which went viral and won over the hearts of millions of people.
