sleepy grizzly bear in AlaskaA sleepy grizzly bear tries to wake up from a nap.  This grizzly bear who we named “Cheetah” chose to walk up to where my husband and I were sitting and take her nap next to us in the grass.  This was actually the first day we met her.  Cheetah was usually quite cranky around other bears, but seemed to enjoy the company of humans.  Before this nap she had charged a smaller male bear who got too close.

I actually quite frequently saw grizzly bears sitting in this funny posture with their arm resting on a bent knee.  They always remind me of a catalog model trying to look casual when they sit this way.  This beautiful brown bear we named Caramel was enjoying resting in the summer sun in the wet sand, which is actually the sea floor exposed during low tide.
