May Photo Challenge - Entries (Please Post them here)

The Topic this month, thanks to Raymo, is "wild animal[s] in their natural habitat"

Please don't break any health authority regulations to get this shot. I doubt it will count as 'Essential Travel'.

Also Remember...
* This thread is only for posting your entry, together with any comments/explanation/details you'd like to issue concerning your own photo.
[sometimes this may help sway the judges]
* However, comments on other people's entries, or any "other" shots of your own you'd like to share, can be posted in the Comments and Rejects Thread -> HERE.
* And, it's only one entry (that's just one image) per person (but you can change it out at any time if you get a better one)
* Importantly, the image must be your "own work" and
* all other normal forum rules, and image size limits, apply.

The image doesn't necessarily have to be taken this month, so you will probably have plenty of time to pore over your back catalogues for an amazing shot, while you Stay At Home!
In this regard, YES, the image may be one that you have previously posted, unless of course it has already been voted a previous photo challenge winner.

The winner of the public vote, which will be run at the end of the month, will get to choose next month's topic and have their photo added to our "Photo Challenge Hall of Fame".

Good Luck!

Well I thought this might meet the required criteria, from the banks of the Mary River in NT, admitted, a little while ago, but we are not allowed out

Fierce Creatures !

on my essential exercise walk today, these are the only "animals" I saw around, Tuggerah Lake Shared Pathway.

While the Lake is their natural habitat, I'm not too sure how Wild they are.
But I'm sure they could give you a nasty peck!

Just a quick snap on the phone.

A Coati, a member of the racoon family, near Iguassu Falls in Argentina/Brazil. It is quite large, just over a metre long.

In a similar vein to the last post. Hopefully this attaches ok, I am doing it from my phone. I took this pic yesterday at home.

Worms, beware.

I was actually trying to get the cam to give me the two of these roughly in focus while the second bird was sitting on the gate. But for birds that seem to sit around a lot they are surprisingly hard to get a static photo of. Five seconds later the second bird was back on the gate with a nice big worm!

Tawny Frogmouth up close and personal. Unusual and lucky to catch it with eyes so wide open in daylight.

snow monkey taken in japan a while back

not sure how natural habitat it is, but they had definitely claimed the onsen for themselves.
