This months theme, selected by last months winner, nrothschild, is Food. From Neil, "Any animal subject is welcome, birds, reptiles, mammals (not insects). The subject must have food under its control or it can be actively feeding its young. Pictures of the subject hunting may qualify if its prey is under the hunters control. For example, a bear with a salmon in its paws is okay but a bear watching salmon is not since it is not in control of its food in the photo.” Non-Captive Only for this one.  

Below are a few from Neil to help inspire the theme!
