This month's theme, selected by last month's winner, Valentino, is Picture Post Card - with Caption. We all have pictures that would make great cards, especially with the right caption or tag-line. For this contest we want some well-composed captures matched with an appropriate caption such that it would make a great advertisement, post card, holiday card, greeting card or gag card for some type of product or occasion. They may be serious or humorous, like - the caption a picture of a baby monkey as a ‘congratulations on your first born’.

Some light to moderate post processing is permitted on this one - but not too excessive. The caption should ideally be part of the picture but I know this can be a challenge for some depending on what software they have, so instead simply add the caption above or below the picture, and of course to the Subject line when you post. Pictures without a caption will not qualify for the finals.

Please give some thought to the caption - you don't want to wake up a week later and have a better line. This should be fun one!!!!

Captive subjects welcome but as always, NO pets or farm animals as they do not belong in the wildlife forum.

RULES:
--Post up to 7 images but only one image/post
--Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
--Previously posted images are welcome - but not previous contest winners
--When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
--Include a title in the subject line
--Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
--Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
--WARNING posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge cannot qualify as finalists, and may or may not be removed by the moderators

The top images will be selected by the previous months winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image with be added to the Wildlife Contest Winners Gallery

Good Luck
