Mini-challenge #546: The animal kingdom

For this challenge, show us your favorite animal shots. Wild, tame, domesticated, crawling, galloping, flying — all welcome.

The challenge will end in exactly a week - Saturday, 30 January 2021 at 10PM EST (GMT-5)

THE RULES

The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going.

You may enter up to three competition images.

Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post only and please remember to change the Subject of your post to display your name or picture titles.

Please state whether your submission is an ENTRY or EXHIBIT.

If you do not wish to enter the MC and host the next challenge should you win, please state your submission as "Just for Fun" (or "Exhibition") in the subject line (or in the message text).

The host chooses the winner after the challenge closes (usually after one week). The decision of the judge (the host) is final. The judge is not eligible.

The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person.

If you submit a photo, please check in when the winners are posted. The first place winner is expected to host the next challenge.

If the first place person cannot host or does not respond within three days, it moves to the 2nd place, etc.

Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

Please give a title to each photo - this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Feel free to comment on other contestants' images.

Crandell's First -Wait...how many dragonflies are there?!?

Well done, Twitchly. That was a great photo. You have a pretty solid eye.

This dragonfly...or are there really two...the Shadow knows.*

*If insects are meant to be excluded, please let me know and I'll post something more suitable.

Interesting variety of a dragonfly.  I don't think I've seen one quite like that before.  Good capture.

Am I recalling this correctly? This photo was taken when you found this dog run over/struck by a car and broken back?

Yes. After vet examination and care - nothing to be done about paraplegy - I adopted her, she is alive and aparently well. Playful, at least.
