Cute moment a young bear takes a paw to the jaw as a play-fight eruptions among sleepy cubs in Alaska
- Photographer Caron Steele, from Worcestershire, UK, was 90 feet away from bears while they started to play
- The cubs awoke from a nap at Silver Salmon Creek, Alaska, as they swept each other
- Mrs. Steele, who had waited patiently for a week to capture the action shot, snarled about 60 photos of the fight
These cute pictures show two naughty baby bears with a playfight.
Nature photographer Caron Steele  managed to capture the moment when the young cubs awoke from their naps and began to & # 39; mess with each other & # 39 ;.
Caron, from Worcestershire, said she was about half a meter away from the bears and was waiting for the bears for a week to take this perfect picture.
The photos were taken on a beach in Silver Salmon Creek, Alaska.
Young cubs, of course, play as fights for more serious fights that they may have to endure in the future with territorial male bears. This young cub takes a paw as he tacks the other to the ground
These young cubs didn't like to wake up after a nap, jump up immediately and as photographer Mrs. Steele describes & # 39; messing around with each other & # 39;
She said: It felt great to take pictures like this and it was great to be as close and on foot for such strong and possibly fierce animals, with nothing but a can of bear spray as protection.
& # 39; I waited and waited for a week. I sat quietly and waited for them to stir.
& # 39; Warm and relaxed, the cubs woke up after a nap and decided it was time to play in the sunshine.
& # 39; They started to fight. The cubs made deep growling noises and barked as they fought.
Caron, from Worcestershire, England, said she was sitting about 90 feet of bears on a beach in Silver Salmon Creek, Alaska
& # 39; Usually they started harassing each other and fascinating each other until a fight started.
& # 39; Although it is only play for the time being, it is a necessary learning process for when they are older and the fights are more serious. & # 39;
Caron said she was constantly fighting about 60 shots of the cubs.
She added: & # 39; I tried to get eye contact and avoid the strong shadows cast by the midday sun.
Mrs. Steele said it took more than a week to see the cubs to take the perfect action photo
& # 39; We had quietly approached the bears when they went to sleep on the beach, making sure they were aware of our presence.
& # 39; We didn't want to scare them, so we approached them slowly after the mother saw us.
& # 39; We had to be constantly vigilant about their behavior and all other approaching bears to make sure we didn't panic or provoke an attack.
& # 39; It was quite surreal, strangely calm to be one with nature and yet your adrenaline was pumping all the time while we were constantly vigilant. & # 39;

The young bear playfully bites the other at the neck skin. Wildlife photographer Caron Steele studied zoology at Oxford University and then went on to pursue a career in banking and advertising before changing careers to capture moments like these
