This months theme, selected by last months winner, EAPhoto, is Reptiles.
From Eric, “Lets see your best reptile shots. They can be sunning, blending in, hunting, hiding or just about anything as long as they in nature. Wild subjects only, no captive entries.”
Reptile is defined as, a cold-blooded vertebrate of a class that includes snakes, lizards, crocodiles, turtles, and tortoises. They are distinguished by having a dry scaly skin, and typically laying soft-shelled eggs on land.

Participating in our monthly contests is a fun way help us become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work each month.
These monthly contests are the preliminary rounds for the Annual Nikonians Photo Contest where you have the opportunity to win attractive prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine.
The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the theme, and creativity just to name a few.
I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!
RULES: -- Post up to 5 images but only one image per post -- This is a contest – Please present your best, portfolio quality, work -- 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 will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice.
Shot in the grounds of a wildlife park in Brisbane, Aus; however this is a wild animal - they can be found all over Brisbane, from parks and green areas like this to the boardwalk alongside the river in the city centre.
