A mother teaches her three cubs to survive in the forest by making them keep watch for any approaching males. Each of the brown bear cubs take their turn keeping watch while the family relaxes by a nearby river - before they all patrol the area as a family.

They are protecting their territory from adult male bears, who have been known to attack and kill young cubs. The amazing photographs were taken by 52-year-old Alexander Perov on the Russian border near Kajaani, Finland.
