Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Animal Kingdom"

Description
: The entire animal kingdom is fair game EXCEPT for homo sapiens.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or Farktography.net (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

You should be able to just visually scan down your past entries under the "grouped by contest" tab.

Gorgeous stuff as always, folks! And lots of new and returning folks as well, which is always nice to see.  I'd like to extend a warm welcome to our Farktography First Timers CAT-LIKE TYPING DETECTED, Itinerant1, sdromeo, xtech, and XyzzyBob, as well as offer a warm welcome back to some folks we hadn't seen in awhile: ckellingc, jtips, Tad_Waxpole, Uncle_Git, WalMartian, and whidbey--hope to see all of you back next week!

Results aren't final until the thread closes, but at this point, congrats to top finishers MorningBreath, Linguine, and IncorrigibleKitty!  Final winner will receive all glory and honor at farktography.net and in the Fark Farktography Forum after the thread closes.

See everyone next week for "Catching Fire"!
