Capturing the adorable close up family snaps from a hide was 57-year-old school teacher Valtteri Mulkahainen.

Photographer of eight years Valtteri said: “I had to flick the cub’s nose with my fingers to frighten it away as it was poking his nose all the time in the hole in the wall intended for the camera lens.

“These lucky shots make me want to take my camera and go to the woods again and again.

“The bear mum was attentively watching everything that was happening around her cubs.

“If she feels there is any type of danger, she commands her cubs to get up on the trees.”
