The young bears soon tire themselves out, before settling down for a cuddle with mum.

The super-cute snaps, taken by photographer Max Waugh, from Seattle, were taken at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

Max, 39, said: “This was a particularly good year for black bear cubs in the park.

“The bears were such an energetic and playful pair of cute cubs – and pretty well behaved!

“I enjoyed the ‘access’ given to us by the mum – she seemed to be pretty tolerant of onlookers and crowds that occasionally form in the park.

“This mother was pretty laid back and willing to let the crowds get a good view of her adorable off-spring.
