Childhood wonder

This picture of Your Shot photographer Vironica Golden’s son tells a very personal story. “After years of infertility I feel very lucky that we were able to conceive with the help of IVF,” she says. “Having children made me change the way I see the world; ordinary things become extraordinary in the eyes of children.”

Wrestling

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!

Say Aah!

Cape fur seals are a favorite photographic subject of mine. They are curious and playful but at the same time hard to photograph. When there are hundreds of seals in the water they zoom around at breakneck speeds, their bodies forming strange shapes as they twist and turn. Occasionally a mob of seal pups will take great pleasure in tugging a diver’s fins or bumping a cameraman’s strobes, leaving the diver amused but slightly abused. Here a seal takes great pleasure in mouthing my dome port. Seal Island, Hout Bay, Cape Town.
