Polar Bears Spar

These two polar bears spar in the willows on the shores of the Hudson Bay. The bears will spend the winter out on the ice hunting ringed seals. Prior to the ice forming, large male polar bears gather near Churchill, Canada. The Hudson Bay freezes faster in this area, allowing them to get on the ice and start their winter hunts. by J. Michael Darter
