Cuddle Up

Two polar bear cubs snuggle up to their mother shortly after emerging from their Arctic den. "I feel their bonds, their love, their connection," commented Your Shot producer David Y. Lee. "I love how in your frame one of the cubs is looking at the camera, it almost appears like it is smiling at us." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
