This bear picked a daring place for a slumber as she balanced precariously on a tiny branch - 50ft in the air. 

The brave four-year-old Brown bear climbed almost to the top of the huge tree just so she could doze and enjoy the stunning forest views that surround her. She cleverly distributed her weight by placing two paws on one thin branch underneath her and grabbed another in front of her.

 She relaxed for hours up the tree to take in the beautiful views in Fla, Norway. Jorgen Tharaldsen, a 41-year-old game designer from Oslo, Norway, was lucky enough to see the bear sitting at the top of the tree. He said: 'When I first saw her, I could hardly believe the small branches could cover that much weight. It looks like it's barely enough!

 But the bear was smart about it, ensuring she distributed weight across the thin branches. It was wonderful to see. 'As an avid photographer - I never leave the house without my camera - it's a rare gift to experience such a moment.

 'This was a day where everything simply aligned in a perfect way. 'The emotion of the bear, the unlikely location, the afternoon nordic light, the weather, the depth of the image with the valley kilometres behind the bear, and the autumn colours of nature were all perfect.
