These adorable images show a group of close-ups of brown bears as they search the lake for a bit of salmon to eat.

Mike Korostelev, 36, a native of Moscow, captured the nose of beautiful animals in the first place while hunting some tasty treats.

Mike, director of the travel company, took the photographs at the federal sanctuary of South-Kamchatka, on the Ozernaya River and Lake Kurilskoe, in Russia, last month.

The underwater photographer decided to place his camera on top of the lake and maneuver it in the way of bears.

He said: & # 39; I am an underwater photographer of wild animals, but sometimes, as at this moment, I use my camera on water.

"In the photos, the bears are walking on the lake, they are looking for salmon, since it is the spawning season.

"I put the camera in its path, and I used a remote control to shoot."

"My favorite photo is one in which a mother with a puppy is already moving away from the camera, and a second curious puppy is looking at the camera."
