Brother Bears

Two bear cubs play in a forest of the Carpathian Mountains in Ukraine. Your Shot photographer Volodymyr Burdiak says he wasn't expecting to see them emerge from the bushes, and he had only a few seconds to get this photograph before they ran back into the woods with their mother. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram. Follow us on Instagram at @natgeoyourshot or visit us at for the latest submissions and news about the community.
