Polar Bears at Play.

While I was in Churchill, Canada watching polar bears, two bear began to spar. It was interesting to see them practice their fighting skills. When they are out on the ice and looking for a mate, these skills will be dead serious. For now they seemed to be having fun even it a little blood was drawn on the scar face bear. It is amazing how fast these big bears can maneuver. ImageImageImage

Many flamingo gaither on a small island in a
