What happens, when two men fell in love with one pretty woman. They start fighting. At least, it should be this way. The same happens among Yakutian horse males. They are real machos. Animals fight furiously! Take a look at the photo report delivered by a blogger nicknamed Log. 12 photographs of one fascinating fight for the heart of the lady.

The spring is the most expected season during the winter in Yakutia. When it comes, it brings a great joy, as it gets warmer, snow melts, ice starts floating on rivers. A spectacular nature event, but… The spring brings disasters as well. They happen to be devastating and hundreds of private houses and households go under water. This weekend the disaster came to the town of Srednekolymsk (population: 3500 people) situated on the west bank of the Kolyma River in North-East Yakutia, Siberia / Russia. The ice jam…

Here we just use the word «May 1st» (in Russian, «Pervomaj» or «Pervoe Maja».) How do we percept this holiday? In my and many others’ opinion, it is more like a celebration of the spring.

It’s already a good tradition. Annually, Mammoth Yakutsk Off-Road Club arranges the spring race, that officially opens the season for the club’s all-terrain events. It happens in April, when snow is still on the ground. This year was not exception.

Ok. No more words, take a look at my following photographs.
