Challenge #26 in the Nature and Us series. Hosted by PentUp.
Challenge has finished
"For the female of the species is more deadly than the male" (Rudyard Kipling "The Female of the Species"). Lets see images of wildlife that prominently feature the FEMALE of the species doing her thing. Females are often the hunter/provider, the protector/guardian, mentor/teacher of the young, seductress of the males... Please INCLUDE in the subject or notes section; the SPECIES of wildlife, the general LOCATION (biome/environment/ecosystem) in which the photograph was taken. NO CAPTIVE animals such as in zoos or artificial enclosures. The animals must be "Living Wild", so not domestic animals on a farm. Entries that do not list in the notes/description section Species AND the Location in which the image was taken will be Disqualified [if polite warning to withdraw and re-submit with full information is not heeded].
