Using his fluffy white surroundings as a blanket, the bear drifted off to the land of nod - completely oblivious to the freezing Arctic temperature.
And when it came to waking up later on, he displayed the same kind of reluctance as many people do after a much needed snooze.
First he opened his eyes a little and then gradually uncurled from his comfy sleeping position, enjoying a massive stretch followed by a big yawn.
The polar bear was pictured having his nap on an iceberg in Svalbard, Norway, by professional wildlife photographer Andy Rouse.
