Yours truly

Sparring - 1

     These friendly competitors are just practicing. The serious stuff doesn't begin till much later, out on the ice, when they start competing over food (seals) and access to mating females. During these last few days of fall (it's still a warm 0 to 25 F), young males while away the time by sparring while waiting for the ice to freeze on the bay. They ignore the nearby tundra bunkhouse filled with people taking pictures.
