Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Take a Walk on the Wild Side"

Description
: Wild animals or wild landscapes. The key world here is wild. Zoos, pets, and manicured lawns are right out. Go forth and adventure.

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.

The Muscovy duck (Cairina moschata) is a large duck native to Mexico, Central, and South America. Small wild and feral breeding populations have established themselves in the United States, particularly in Florida and the lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas as well as in many other parts of North America.

Saw this one on the Entiat River in Central Washington

A kinglet, during a particularly harsh spell of winter.  I've never seen it since that winter...

This very timid and elusive white dove hung around the house a few seasons, it's not a great pic, but it makes me smile.

This is a Hummingbird Moth.
While it flight, it actually hovers and looks like a hummingbird.

Did you see a lot of brown bear in Denali?  Denali and Katmai are both on my wishlist.

Fall Foliage

Lit by a low, evening sun, somewhere along the Little Cataloochee trail in the Smokies, long after the last of the color should have passed for that altitude.

Black Bear Cub

One of a pair of twins taking to a tree to avoid a mess of screaming campers. Mama was about 15 feet below saying something that sounded like "get your arse down here, we need to go."

Yes we did, we were there Labor day weekend and there were still many out and about. We took the regular green shuttles, not a private tour. The moose were mostly gone by then, though, which was disappointing.

The little nubs in the inside top of its ear are a bunch of engorged ticks. I hadn't realized until I pixel peeped.

While it flight, it actually hovers and looks like a hummingbird.

Actually it's a Skipper, which is not a butterfly or a moth.

I take it back. Apparently they've been reclassified as butterflies:
