14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Nap time

Content and tired bear cub falls asleep with a stick .I observed a seemingly frustrated and bored cub play with this stick while his mother slept a few yards away . Sensing her cubs boredom she called her cub over for a round of mom and son playtime . After a few minutes of play the little cub returned to the tree took up his stick and fell asleep hugging his little stick.
