One cannot be at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park and not enjoy the Lions and Bears as well. Next to the Tiger pit were the two sister lions – Shera and Nababiep. These elegant cats enjoying the warm morning sun.
The morning sun was also putting the Sloth Bear to sleep. Sitting upright on the bamboo wall, this bear was truly luxuriating.
High in a tree, the Red Panda was tucked in for their mid-morning nap. How he thinks this is a comfortable bed escapes me.
Only the Giant Panda was quietly sniffing around, looking for a snack.
I don’t know about you, but a nap in the morning sounds like a great idea to me.
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
