Pictured: The cub. <br />

A playful polar bear cub looks like he is screaming in delight as he throws himself at his mother and dives into the water.<br />
<br />
The young cub confronted his initial fears and bravely jumped in - after a little coaxing from his mother. <br />
<br />
And once in the water he couldn't help but play by splashing and swimming after his mum.<br />
<br />
Wildlife photographer Gerard Lacz was visiting a park, in Canada, Quebec, when he saw the female polar bear in the water and her unsure cub at the edge of the pool.<br />
<br />
Although polar bears are confident swimmers, the cub was at first wary about the water.<br />
