Lazy Day On A Log For A Black Bear

I noticed around mid day that black bears tend to relax more than in early morning. This bear had walked over many logs and came upon this one and totally relaxed and put his paws over one and stayed there for awhile. He barely moved and I was able get his pose as he looked in my direction.
