  • I am pretty sure this is a roe deer with his new velvet covered antlers. The back lighting is extraordinary and gives this photograph sharp highlights. The moon makes it extra special. Beautiful well done.

  • It is the light that does it and squirrel’s tale certainly has soaked up plenty of that. Sweet photo, well done.

  • Well it does look as though this cheetah has his eye on a prey, the distant antelope looks on mockingly. Lovely opportunity, well taken.

  • Well we don’t see many koalas on here so this was refreshing. Nice shot, he looks very happy amongst all those eucalyptus leaves. Cuteness brings you through :-)

  • Rather you than me! Well done for keeping your nerve and your finger on the button. You have made a fearsome photo of this hammer head, the black and white adds to that. The diver in the background helps us feel the reality and get in there with you.

  • Thank you so much for the Mark of Excellence. This was taken in Lord Stirling Park in central New Jersey. I was on one of the farther out trails of the park when I spotted this guy. It was a quiet day and luckily I was able to move slow enough where I could lay down on the boardwalk trail, getting as close to his level as possible, without scaring him away. The frog's patience allowed me to get off a few shots, adjust my settings and take a bunch more. Any post processing adjustments are extremely minor. This was taken using a Nikon D750.
