Challenge #29 in the Nature series. Hosted by Kokeen4231.
Challenge has finished
This challenge is for natural landscape shots with animal/s in it. Aim to portray an animal as beautiful, cute or majestic as possible. The animal does not need to be the sole point of beauty. It can be the overall effect the picture gives when an animal merges well with the background. Like a wolf howling to the moon. So try to ensure the animal matches the landscape well.
