This month's theme, selected by last month's winner, vizz, is Water Action. From Vesna, "The photos should capture animals actively engaged with water - spraying, splashing, or shaking it off. They may show spraying and splashing animals, such as splashing waterfowls and any other birds, spraying/showering elephants, wet animals shaking dry, and the like... Posts must be action images, dynamic captures of animals in contact with water, showing water droplets/spray/spurts, animals enjoying/using water, where water in the air is an active visual element in the image. Excluded from the contest are static images of animals, water, and/or captures without action.”
 
Captive subjects are welcome.
