RuthC: Congratulations, Jack Cat, on coming second in this 'Ducks, Geese & Swans' challenge, with your beautifully placed flying swans. The soft greens of the background and water allow the whiteness of the swans to show to their best advantage, while their bright orange beaks add highlights to the pair. A wonderful capture, with which you must have been very pleased. Ruth :-)

Thanks Ruth!

Steve Macomber: On the money and Well Done with one of my favorite lens with no IS especially at 1/1250 if this was a hand held capture.

Thanks Steve! One of my favorites as well. Yes, handheld. I've found I can get good results down to about 1/500 handheld with this lens, particularly when panning.

Simply amazing that you could get close enough to a wild raptor to get a shot like this at 55mm. Amazing...

If this is a wild black bear in its natural habitat you are without a doubt the bravest person on the face of the earth! However it looks like a picture of your dog.

Simply amazing how you were able to sneak up on this wild owl in its natural habitat and take this close up at 22.6mm.

Since when is an owl at a raptor center a wild animal in its natural environment?

Quite a few high finishers with photos of "wild" animals taken at short focal lengths, raptor centers and at least one dog and a cat. Just sayin'...

Images by Kipper: Well done Jack, with 6 votes of 5.0 plus my own 5.0 you should be very pleased that so many of us thought that your submission was great. Some very stiff competition for sure, you should be very pleased.
Cheers ~ Kipper

Thanks Kipper! Many fantastic photos this week. I felt 6 or 7 had a legitimate shot at winning. Turns out 4 of them finished ahead of mine! Considering the competition I am very pleased with my finish. Your entry certainly caught my eye. I am surprised it did not finish higher.

Images by Kipper: Robert Bateman would be hard pressed to improve on this image. To think I am up against this....you win.... hands down. Absolutely beautiful in every way, photographically and subject.

I had to look up Robert Bateman. WOW! thank you for the compliment! I guess if you press the shutter button often enough and hold it down long enough you're bound to stumble across something. Thanks again and best of luck in the challenge.

This is not an amphibian. It is a lizard, a reptile.

Nice shot, my personal favorite. Apparently the "cat people" hijacked the challenge.
