This little bear cub has picked a comfy place to take an afternoon nap so shouldn't be grizzly when he wakes up.

The heartwarming scenes, captured by professional photographer Denis Budkov, 35, during a trip to Kuril Lake in Kamchatka, in Russia, show the animal family have bear-ly a concern in the world as they play and snooze in the sunshine.

He sat and watched as the mother, who was also already lying on the banks of the lake,- became a makeshift sofa for one of her playful cubs.

'I noticed this family - a mum with two cubs. Then after a while, I noticed something unusual, which I had never seen before - the cub climbed onto his mother like a chair,' he said.

'He looked very comfortable, and stayed there for nearly half an hour. The mother looked less impressed, but seemed so tired from looking after her energetic babies that she just stayed put.'
