    Animal Instinct

    This week's picture will be on ANIMALS. However, it does NOT include domesticated cats and dogs, since they either already have, or will have, their own separate category. The "wild cousins" of cats and dogs such as tigers, lions, coyotes, wolves, etc. are allowed.

    Good luck!

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    Zz.

    Going for the cute factor with this one. The chipmunks will seek me out and climb on me looking for seeds, but these guys are too cautious for that.

    Now it's the battle for 2nd place.

    Here's a pair of average, typical, Central Park birds.

    Thanks for the early vote of confidence, but with all the photographers on this forum, I don't expect a pair of red squirrels to hold up.

    By the way, is Central Park in Hawaii? What ARE those birds?

    Nice white-tail, larkspur! You must have gotten her in May before fawning time - her belly is way big.

    Sure, but tigers eat 50-75# of meat a day, so you wouldn't last more than a few days. :rofl:

    Yes, I took this in May.

    If you ate enough of the stuff in my entry (habanero relish) it might make you tiger-proof.

    Ever since I saw that youtube video on Kenny the retarded white tiger, I can't help but laugh when I see any white tiger.:rofl:
