My theme for this Mini is critters with a little attitude

I am sorry for the wait ,I wanted a new theme but asking and looking = I have to vote and pick a winner . If I every win again it will be the theme but I will fine tune it a bit . I have to go with something I have shots of and feel good about. I will have shots next time if there is a next time ?

Not just birds or pets but anything animal will work . After the last couple of minis I think and hope this keeps the flow going and will go well.



This Mini will run from this minute through March 13 2014 @ 9:00PM PTZ. The 14th is my BDAY so I will vote as a gift to me :D So please dgrin send me a few GOODIES :wink

************************************************** ************************

OUR UN-OFFICIAL GENERAL RULES
1. Have fun sharing and seeing what others share!
2. The host supplies a topic and YOU POST 1-3 IMAGES. The host judges the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and is not eligible to enter. The 1st place winner becomes the next host, chooses the next topic and becomes the next judge.
3. Any photo you’ve taken is eligible, regardless of when taken or camera used.
4. Any amount of post-processing is allowed. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo.
5. You may comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you some critique or criticism, just ask within your post.
6. The winner has up to three days (72 hours) to begin a new mini-challenge, or the honor goes to the #2 finisher and so forth.


Guidelines:
1. Enter 1-3 photos and put them in a single post.
2. Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).
3. Also try and resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (~800 pixels on the longest side works best.)
4. Give each image you enter a title.
5. Enjoy discussion with members about their images, don't let this just be an entry thread!
6. When quoting a post, change the IMG urls to a 200x200 size picture so it is clear your post is feedback and not another entry. (See here for help).
7. Don't be hesitant; share 'em and enter!

Mini-Challenge pointers:
1. Upon winning a mini-challenge round, your first step is coming up with a new theme and starting a new thread using the same format as others have used.
2. Make sure to notify the admin of this thread to update the main thread links with your entry thread.
3. Feel free to watch the thread as it grows or wait to the end time and look at all the entries all at once.
4. After the time/date has passed, then officially close the thread with a single post notifying everyone of the fact.
5. After you're finished judging, start a new thread (again using the prior formats) and post your Winner and runners-up. It is important to have runners up in case the winner does not show within the 72-hour window.
6. PM the winner with this info above and let them know they have 72 hours to set up the next mini-challenge.
7. If the winner does not show/start the next mini-challenge after 72 hours, notify the next runner-up and post a message on the Winner thread of the fact.
8. Remember, if you're the Winner, you run the next mini challenge!

    Hi
    I always love some fun animals shots. Looking forward to seeing the entries.
    I am leaving tomorrow for a 2 week camping tour of NZ so I am entering now as I do not know how much WiFi access I will get. (BTW, I will try posting some pictures along the way on the facebook page of my travel blog so if any of you is interested, you can follow it: https://www.facebook.com/zigzagonearth iloveyou.gif)


    Those are my entries. Quality is not so good but my goal is to make you smile. So I hope it will!

    1. What??? Do I make you grind your teeth?

    2. Guys! Let's stop and smile for the pretty lady!

    He he ... fortunately it was not my camera but a guy in one of the other safari vehicles dropped it over the side. He had no other camera or binoculars and glumly watched his camera being eaten for half an hour - the lion loved it! I should have offered him a copy of this shot for insurance reasons as it probably not a common claim !
