Mother's Love (Grizzly Bears)

Imagine being one hundred yards from a mother grizzly bear and her two cubs - there is nothing but air and grass between you as you observe them foraging for food. Mom demonstrates how as she rips through the earth with her three-inch-long claws digging up tubers. The cubs are paying no attention as they play, swatting at each other with smaller versions of those same claws. Their play causes one of the cubs to tumble down the hillside toward mom. You watch as she reaches with those razor sharp claws toward the cub, only to stop it for a moment so she could gently touch noses in a tender way only a mother can.
