This month's theme, selected by last month's winner, scottashley, is Living on the Edge. From Scott, "Life in the wild is often about living on the edge. With winter coming on, survival for most animals is a matter of keeping warm and finding enough food. Predators must track down or scavenge enough food to avoid starvation. Their prey must outrun, outfly or out-swim predators to see another sunrise. Some animals live in harsh conditions where survival is a day-to-day struggle. Others live in rugged, steep environments where a careless step can mean death.

Photos for this month's contest should capture animals living on the edge—in harsh environment, harsh conditions, dangerous circumstances, pursuing or being pursued—to survive.

NO captive animals, please, since they are living in controlled environments."

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
