While visiting the Bavarian Forest in Germany, Ingo’s impressive photos showcase the bears in their natural habitat.

Ingo, who is also a graphic designer, said: “These bears are around two years old and are playing in the fresh snow.

“This play fight is not only a strength test, it’s also a classical ranking fight.

“The playful fight of the siblings lasted about 30 minutes. They were not injured.

“These fights are quite normal with young bears and belong to the development of a bear generation.

“I have been going to the Bavarian Forest for decades.

“This region of Germany offers a warm hospitality and a partly breathtaking landscape. But above all the animal world has always impressed me there.”
