A Daytona Beach, FL bear sure knows how to get some rest and relaxation. The American Black Bear was photographed laying on a hammock, allegedly after a long day of hard work scavenging for food.

Daily Star reported that the hammock belonged to Vincent James, who says he saw the bear laying on it for about 20 minutes before he left running out into the woods after being spooked by a noise.
“He got in the hammock like he was a tourist or something. Then something spooked him and he ran right back there,” said James.
The spook must have not been enough to keep him from enjoying the hammock once more, for James says he saw the bear return half an hour later.
According to The Independent, Rafael Torres, who captured the images of the bear's lounging, says he followed the bear and was about 60 feet away when he took the photos.
There have been several neighborhood sightings of the bear since Wednesday.
