"January Contest - Water Action"


US
          

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.

Below are a few sample images from Vesna





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

This pic blows my mind. How big was that bird? Eels are incredibly hard to kill. I imagine it was alive and squirming inside that cormorant for a long time. The eel looks to be too heavy for that bird to lift off after swallowing it. Amazing shot!

I was tracking this brown bear fishing for salmon in a river when he took a long shake to get the water out of his ears (which bears don't like). Since he was backlit, every water droplet stood out against the dark background.

Homestead, US
          

Every time one of these guys came up with a fish, it would attract other cormorants to the area and try and get the fish, so it had to be very fast to get it down without being attacked. This one wasn't fast enough.

Sea of Cortez, Baja. It is rare for these dolphins to 'fly' like this. It was sudden and from a Zodiak-no time to think....

This is one lesson that a young goose learned by getting to close to a much bigger male goose during mating season. He actually pushed this young goose completely under water which emerged later and swam well away to the middle of the lake. Never knew a full grown goose could swim under water even though he did have a little help. Taken at Barr Lake State Park, Co.

I was sat in my hide on the river Ilen, hoping to get a shot of a Kingfisher or Otter, this guy came along and had a real good clean up right in front of my hide and then stood with wings spread drying out for a long time, not at all bothered by me in the slightest.
