There were a lot of entries in this category but many were pretty landscape or wildlife shots that just didn't stand out. We liked the moment in the first place photo - good seeing by the photographer. Second place made us laugh; an uncommon sight by our standards, at least. Wish the photographer had cropped in a little more from the right, however. Third place also made us laugh but we wish the photographer had squared up the framing, which would have made the picture stronger.
