Thanks tubbs. Very cute pic right off the bat. I'm a sucker for squirrels and cats though. Well all critters really!

I have so many pictures...I'm debating whether to submit any because I feel weird picking the theme to my own advantage. I pretty much only have pictures of animals and have collected quite a few interesting ones. It's also hard for me to choose and don't want to flood the thread lol

I have a bunch of these... I think I'll go with this one, probably. I spent an hour near these butterflies, and slowly they came closer and closer



You can always post a few at least and then pick one before voting starts. :)

I love kitties. <3 Here's one of my beauties, I'm going to NSFW it though because I don't think it'll be my submission.

I love the frog one! I have a similar one somewhere with a mite. Can't find it now though. Here are a couple more I like.

NSFW:








(The above is not a real critter but such a lovable dragon sculpture)


(This guy was a really bold chipmunk who was climbing on me and stole some nuts from inside my backpack)


(These were some beautiful arctic wolves I met when I camped at a wolf sanctuary in Colorado)

I took this picture of a dragonfly last summer, just before it nearly flew into my eyeball! Hope you enjoy. - Dreamflyer

Talk about chiaroscuro...

Took this picture of our pug recently and it's turned out surprisingly well. Although it looks like she's smoking a cigar, she's actually chewing on a twig. The best thing is, it looks to me like a banksy painting...

Edit: I didn't realise there was a dedicated critters thread, so I've moved this from the photography thread to here.
