Even if you do not share my obsession with bears you should absolutely check out this photogallery "of a female brown bear doing her morning stretches." The pictures are amazing. (Unrelated: It is depressing that I am much less flexible than a caged animal.) I can't tell from the captions if Meta Penca is a professional photographer or just someone who happened to be at the zoo with a camera, but either way these are terrific shots. Additional credit goes to the folks at the Guardian for resisting the obvious "Yogi Bear" pun.
