    Gibt es ein schönes Bild im Englischen für "sich gegenseitig umkreisen" während eines Kampfes? Also Lauern und Taktieren, um die ideale Beiß- oder Schlagposition zu finden?

    Klarstellende Ergänzung zu # 1: Man kann auch nicht nur einander (each other) umkreisen, sondern auch ein Objekt oder eine Person.
