Downtime

A mother Black Bear enjoying some very short-lived downtime, as she laid down on and rested on a fallen log.  While she was laying here, her three rascally cubs cried from the trees above her.  She tried to ignore the cubs as long as possible, but a few minutes later she got tired of listening to them squawk and got up, and got back to fishing.

 

It seems like motherhood is no easier for Black Bears than it is for humans, especially when they have three little cubs to take care of.
