“A yellowbanded pipefish, off Tikehau Island, Tuamotu Archipelago, French Polynesia.” – Vincent Truchet

“Shot from the small town of Khangsar, Nepal. We arrived after a full day of hiking. We stayed in a teahouse with a view because I wanted to be ready to take pictures of the mountains as the sun set behind us. This rainbow formed and I took many photos of this beautiful moment.” -Ed Graham

“I captured some wonderful and unusual behavior of a Rosy Pelican, which amazed me. I started photographing the pelican, with something in its pouch, which I first thought to be a big fish — but I discovered it was instead a common pochard duck, which was trying its best to escape!” -Amish Patel

“I had been in Teton National Park for 5 days and hadn’t yet seen the tops of the Teton Range due to non stop storm systems moving through. October can be like that in this majestic part of America. Large herds of bison roam free in this park as well as in Yellowstone, just to the north. It is an awe inspiring sight indeed. After taking pictures of this herd, I felt that I had been “shut out” as the mountain peaks had still not been revealed to me. It wasn’t until I looked at the pictures on my computer that I realized that in a few frames, the peaks had been revealed. What a great surprise.” -Glen Hush

“When you study the flower of life, you will begin to see that all life is built in spirals.” -Harjen Woltjer

“A brown bear shaking off its wet fur in Kamchatka, Russia.” -Robert Pfaffenbauer

“I was driving along the beach highway when I noticed the bulls sunbathing on the empty beach. I initially thought i was seeing things,but no it really was sunbathing cows! I had to park my car a fair distance away and that meant a long walk along the beach in 35 degree heat. When I got closer to them I was careful not to spook them, so I crawled on my stomach on the hot sand to get a good picture. Mission Accomplished!” -Andrew Lever

“Praying mantises in Kahramanmaras, Turkey.” – Mehmet Karaca

“While studying in Florence, Italy, I went on a trip throughout Europe. The first stop was in Berlin, Germany, where we rented bikes and rode throughout the city. While visiting the Jewish Museum I stood under a group of trees and noticed the great interaction of hand-like branches with the light coming through the canopy of leaves.” -Kevin Connolly

“An Alfredi manta ray came close to me with her mouth open on a cleaning station area off Tikehau island, Tuamotu Archipelago, French Polynesia.” -Vincent Truchet

“This solitary dolphin could not not been more beautiful when it rose out of the still ocean water. Location: Channel Islands, California.” -Robin Benson

“I have spent the entire summer chasing thunderstorms all around Italy. I usually stand in front of the camera, to modify the parameters according to lighting’s distance and intensity. This time I was in a very dangerous situation, I was completely surrounded by lightning strikes, so I chose to leave the camera on the tripod shooting in automatic mode. I spent about 15 minutes on the ground, as far as I could from any conducting material, and I protected my eyes and my ears hoping for the best. When I finally looked to the pictures I was very impressed by the size and intensity of the storm.” -Riccardo Criseo

“This is a baby humpback whale near Reunion island. He was born in September of 2013.” -Gaby Barathieu

“The crows that live in Tokyo use clothes hangers to make nests. In such a large city, there are few trees, so the natural materials that crows need to make their nests are scarce. As a result, the crows occasionally take hangers from the people who live in apartments nearby, and carefully assemble them into nests. The completed nests almost look like works of art based on the theme of recycling.” -Yosuke Kashiwakura

“We just wanted to search for a Leopard that morning, but we found a group of giraffes moving toward a small lake and start drinking. It was a nice moment when the Giraffe finished and left a letter “S” shape in the air.” -Majed al Zaabi

“Our black smoke Maine Coon queen.” -Robert Sijka

 “November 6th, 2013 – at approximately 4:15 pm we were all watching this amazing batman-like beam coming over the dyke on the upstream side of the Yukon River which was just beginning to freeze. I grabbed a camera, made my way over towards the river and discovered this amazing scene. As we are heading towards the shortest day of the year, the sun usually disappears between 4:30-4:45 pm.” – Andrea Magee

“We saw this impressive male lion on our way from Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park to Mabuasehube Game Reserve. He was lying right next to the sandy tracks and I don’t know who got more scared when we almost hit him. But as quickly as he jumped up to eye our car suspiciously he laid down again and we got the opportunity to watch him for half an hour and to take some nice pictures of this majestic animal.” -Chris Habegger
