Sleeping Bear

We were nearing the end of our day in Wapusk National Park in Churchill Manatoba, when as the sun was just setting over the beautiful icy landscape we came across this sleeping Polar Bear. He would wake up from time to time to have a look at us and then would go back to his rest enough time to capture this image with the colorful sky in the background.
