Congratulations to our first competition winners last month and a big thank you to everyone who took part.

In first place with 9 votes was @Nick L with his very atmospheric shot "Monsters on the Quay" taken at Poole Harbour, Dorset, UK.
In second place with 7 votes was @PKM-UK with the very beautiful Sumatran Tiger Kasarna, taken at Chester Zoo, Chester, England.
In joint third place with 6 votes was @Hali with her very creative and eye bending macro abstracts shot.
In joint third place with 6 votes was @Dean Wilson with a stunning landscape possibly shot in his home state of Oregon, USA. Please correct me if I'm wrong Dean!

The theme for this months competition is Animals. So this includes pets, wild or captive animals.
