People flock to Florida to relax and catch some rays. And this bear is no exception. Photography instructor Rafael Torres spotted the bear outside of his Daytona Beach home. He snapped some shots, ran back inside to grab a longer lens; and voila... He witnessed his furry friend crawling into the neighbors hammock to recline. (SOUNDBITE) (English) PHOTOGRAPHER RAFAEL TORRES, SAYING: "And he was just laying like this...Like 'oh, this is so nice.' He stayed on that hammock at least 15-20 minutes easily." Neighbors are on the lookout for the bear's return visit. But he won't be able to lounge in the hammock anymore. It's since been taken down.
