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.

The winning image will be added to the Wildlife Contest Winners Gallery. The winner will be recognized in our weekly newsletter and will receive a printable Certificate of Photographic Achievement.


I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!
