A POLAR bear cub gazes adoringly at its mum after emerging from their den for the first time.
The mother then dozed in the snow while the two-month-old played nearby with its siblings.

Brian Matthews, 42, captured the “humbling” scene near Churchill, northern Canada.
He 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.
“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.”
