    What do I see in this picture?
    A man is lying on a chaise longue [1], his face covered with a handkerchief. He's sleeping [2] after lunch. Two birds are flying near the man, and one of them wants to grab his a handkerchief.

     

    [1]   It is often called a "chaise lounge" in the US.

     

    [2]  "sleeping" is correct.  However, when someone intends to sleep for a relatively short time, we usually call that a "nap".  So you could say, "He's napping after lunch", or:  "He's taking a nap after lunch."
