Today’s Photo of the Day is “Momma Needs a Break” by Heather Nicole. Location: Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.

“This momma bear needs a nap after chasing her two young cubs around the beach,” says Nicole. “The long summer days offer 20 hours of sunlight, so she has to improvise if she wants to enjoy a well-deserved snooze on the sand.”

Canon EOS 70D, Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD A011. Exposure: 1/160 sec., ƒ/10, ISO 400.
