Challenge #281: Wild Animal Portraits

I would not be true to myself if I did not have a theme of "wildlife" as I spend so much time chasing wild animals!

****NO PETS PLEASE!!****

For this challenge we will use this definition of Portrait: photograph,  especially one depicting only the face or head and shoulders.

I am looking for wild animal portraits, we all have them, where the subject is as curious as the photographer. The animal is deciding if this is a fight or flight encounter or simply the photographer is just a passer by.

Let the kids play,  have some fun!

All submissions will be considered entered by June 14th 2019 midnight mountain time.

The Rules

The host gives you a topic and you post up to three images that fit.

The host chooses the winners and honorable mentions, and posts those in a new thread. The host's decision is final. Remember, it's all about fun, sharing, and learning. The winner of this challenge then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner of that one, and so on it goes. The winner of this challenge will have 48 hours to post the next challenge. If that doesn't happen, 2nd place will have 24 hours to do so, then it's up to 3rd place.

Submission Posting Guidelines

Challenge is open to any Nikon camera. Post each one of your three submissions in its own reply to this post. Give each post a unique Subject, like, "ENTRY: Tram in Lisbon". It's best to embed an image in its own post rather than linking from somewhere else (you'll get more views that way). If you want people to give you constructive comments and criticism, ask for C&C. Feel free to post photos "for exhibition only" if you want to share more than three or won't be available to host the next challenge, just let us know that in your posts, and title them as "Exhibition" shots. Please, NO LINKING IMAGES OFF SITE. You can do all the post-processing you want (except deleting out unwanted colours), but try to preserve the EXIF so we can see which camera, lens, and settings were used. If you know the EXIF won't come with the image, let us know that kind of stuff in the text of your post.

Comment Posting Guidelines

Feel free to post comments on the images but do be polite/positive. If you would give someone else's submission a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, click on the green "Like?" thumb on the top right of the post, so we know which images were most popular. The host will make up their own mind which images best fit their topic without being influenced by that.
