Russian wildlife photographer Nikolai Zinoviev has probably the coolest job in the world. Imagine yourself following baby bears all day, watching them be goofy and cute. Nikolai Zinoviev spent many days watching them hunt for fish, swim in a lake and walk through forests in Kamchatka and Alaska. As it usually happens, the cubs strike the most funny, cuddly and lovely poses.

Although the bears look fun and friendly it’s a hell of dangerous thing to do. Luckily, his enormous Nikon 600mm lens gives him enough space to feel safe. The artist has a wide variety of other great wildlife shots in his portfolio, but his affection to bears shows through the small moments of their life that Zinoviev manages to capture. Be sure to visit his website to see more breathtaking wildlife images.
