Wild Animals in their Natural Environment

The Challenge

We would like to let our featured artists know that their work has been selected with a big, colourful banner featuring a wonderful photograph chosen by our group members. The winning photograph will also be our new avatar. The photograph must have the animal featured prominently. No landscapes without animals this time around please. National Parks are OK as they are often the home of endangered species.
This is for photographs only. Digital compilations or excessive post-processing will not be acceptable. The photograph MUST have the name of the location in the image description because, if we are in doubt as to where it was taken, it will be removed.

Judging / Voting Criteria
