This Month in Photo of the Day: Images From the 2008 International Photo Contest

Polar bears from all over western Manitoba bide their time in October and November on the western shore of Hudson Bay, just waiting for the bay to freeze over, at which time they disappear out onto the pack ice to feed on seals. While waiting for the ice to form, they sleep, snuggle, play, and play fight with each other!
