Photo of the day

From the Telegraph’s Animal photos of the week:

a 400-pound mother bear runs up to its fearless baby so the pair can lovingly embrace. Other heart-warming pictures show two cute cubs wrestling, racing each other and hunting for clams. Canadian nature photographer Marc Latremouille (47) travelled to Alaska's Lake Clarke National Park to take pictures of the brown bears that make their home there.

I had no idea there was a world’s best “water photographer” but thanks to this gallery, now I can see why:

Recent National Geographic photo of the day (as if this photo isn’t awesome enough, the title is just perfect):

Fearless Symmetry

Photograph by Souvik Kundu, National Geographic Your Shot

It’s a rare and privileged experience to witness the interaction of tiger cubs in the wild, says Souvik Kundu, a member of our Your Shot photo community. After learning that a tigress had given birth to cubs in India’s Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, Kundu visited the sanctuary a number of times to photograph the family. On this day his group was treated to an “unforgettable display of tender bonding,” with “the cubs engaged in several bouts of play-fighting under the watchful eyes of the mother.”

I really want to go to a drag race sometime.  Seriously.  Though I would not want to see anything as dramatic as this (from the Telegraph’s week in pictures):

Nothing like a good “super tide.”  From a cool Telegraph gallery of the phenomenon:

The supertide submerges Mont Saint-Michel's narrow causeway, cutting off the historic commune

A “supertide” is expected to affect coastlines around the North Sea, the English Channel and to a lesser extent in the Mediterranean. The world-famous Mont Saint-Michel on France’s northern coast was cut off by an especially big tide, with a difference between high and low tide of 47.6 ft (14.15 metres)
