After a long day of exploring Daytona Beach, a black bear decided to stretch out and get it’s bearings by lounging in a backyard hammock. The photographer, Rafael Torres, saw the bear climb into the hammock and take a 20 minute breather before heading back into the woods.
Bear’s must practice what they preach. In the immortal words of The Jungle Book‘s Baloo:
“So just try and relax, yeah cool it
Fall apart in my backyard…
And don’t spend your time lookin’ around
For something you want that can’t be found.
When you find out you can live without it,
And go along not thinkin’ about it
I’ll tell you something true,
The bare necessities of life will come to you.”
