A pair of little bear cubs found that the best place to cool off on a hot summer day is the garden bird bath and took full advantage of the opportunity.
The bathing bear siblings were spotted by the homeowner who filmed them out of the window and from the safety of the house.
The little ones are seen clearly enjoying their bath in the murky water, batting away nagging flies and even scrubbing each other clean.

And here are the highlights:
They can be seen luxuriating in the murky water, batting away flies and looking around them contentedly at their unorthodox al fresco spa.
One of curious cubs leans out at one point, seemingly investigating the option of clambering to dry land before abandoning the idea and slipping back into his bath.
To inject some fun into the bath time the pair begin play-fighting, batting one another’s faces and pushing each other.
The pair are small enough to fit snugly in — but they may start crashing jacuzzis instead in a year or so.
But shortly afterwards the more adventurous bear tires of the game and finally heaves himself out, holding up a paw as a sign of farewell before trotting away.
Disinterested in staying alone — and perhaps fearing that he is missing out — the remaining cub soon climbs out and dashes off around the corner of the house and out of sight.
