This month's theme, selected by last month's winner, slopoki1, is Back Lighting. From Rick, "Back lighting can give a unique look to your image that you may not see otherwise. It can also be the only option to get the shot when things are happening and you cannot move to a better lighting angle. Let’s see how you handle backlighting for your wildlife shots.”
 
Captive subjects are welcome.

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
