Ms. Wenner-Braun said: “This was a very special moment for me. I think this bear was tired and needed to rest – but often they rest on their retreat and cannot be seen.

“The feelings of animals always touch me very strongly.

“Wildlife photography is my passion. I often stay with the species that fascinate me for hours.

"To get extraordinary pictures of the animals, you have to spend a lot of time with them."
