This is everyone's opportunity to post pics of their favorite animals, including pets and wildlife. The only stipulation is that you try to make it creatively interesting, not just regular old shots of FLUFFY lying on the couch or an out-of-focus bird on a wire. Try to capture the subject from a unique angle or planned/controlled lighting. Bring quality and character to the image. You may wish to do a close up portrait style photo revealing the animals personality/mood or catch them doing something funny. You could even abstract the image a little in photoshop.
*No animals are to be harmed or depicted in a cruel manner in the participation of this challenge. Thank you.
What an amazing reflection in the first shot! The blue surrounding the white feathers of the bird give it a surreal feeling because in the actual image the blue is not visible. Such a nice crisp shot too.
Excellent Hawk shot as well. Love the monochromatic nature of the photo and the added textures of the wood and rusted barb wire (matches the hawk so nicely). I am huge Hawk watcher( Redtail Hawks in my neck of the woods), always getting in trouble for Hawk spotting while driving. It's a birder thing ;)
I'm a little Squirrel Mad - like totally squirrel mad and If I lived in America i would probably be chipmunk mad too lol I just think they are so cute. This day I took over 70 pics of them you are all very lucky that I have limited it to 3 here lol
I like Swans too - but I'll spam them later lol
Fantastic close up shots Nic!!! OMG, that second photo is the closest up I have ever seen a squirrel. You can actually see its tongue. His little furry hands are so cute. I never realised how long their claws are.
Your the Squirrel Whisperer ;)
Great composition in this shot Heather. Love the way you were able to capture the Flamingo with its head arched all the way back.
