Ok, Richard. ..show us some of your outtakes, because surely, you did capture some photos of these majestic animals in that breathtaking winter wonder-beauty when they were in an ummmmm more traditional pose ???? After you got the voyerurism out of your system that is :) Suuuuurely you got some photos of them looking beautiful and "all-is-well-with-our-world" expressions ???????


um, I think Sandy would like to see some of the "afterglow" shots, Richard..like, say, did he offer her a cigarette?? :) still in my mind, and on repat (after repeat)look, a most excellent image.

*rolls his eyes at the prudes* This is a wonderful shot, Richard. I guess some people want to pretend that lions don't eat other animals, baby mammals all survive, and pregnancies occur because of winks and nudges.

and life goes on....eh?

read all the comments during the challenge some simply hilarious. This is an amazing capture and simply stunning when the content slams the viewer roght b/tw their eyes. It doesn't strike me as anything but nature at work and I am amazed you were able to capture the "moment" without the ram charging you for privacy violation... :)

very strong work! congrats!!

I'm giving this a 10 because I want to see it on the front page.

At once hilarious and a beautiful capture of nature. The snow on the ram is a great added bonus.

hahahahahahahaha I bet your catching hell from this. aside from the content, honestly it's just life, it's a well taken photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/06/2008 12:09:43 PM
Okay, couldn't you give them a little privacy?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/06/2008 12:07:21 PM
This something I didn't want to see. If you see it interesting, I think you should of keep it to yourself and to your friends rather than making it public, after all this is not national geography. I will not vote on your photo, I will let others do so. Because I would give you 1 and not fair :(

01/06/2008 11:13:42 AM
Hahaha... I am wondering how many people you offended with this shot. I think its very 'National Geographic'. :)

Hilarious title

Too funny. Nice detail

01/05/2008 08:34:54 AM
oh... this is a moment I'm happy my english is too bad to discrip what I see here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2008 01:35:19 AM
Ha! You caught exactly the right moment. I like the seemingly disinterested faces. ;-) How far away were you?

(Oh, and I'm predicting a number of ones from "offended" people...)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2008 01:24:29 AM
Oh boy!!! Time for me to stop. I don't know if the rules actually address this with the "male genitalia" clause, as it IS inferred that it refers to humans. But still. I don't want to see another one of these tonight or I'll probably puke. It actually reminds me of a couple of people I work with... maybe that's why... or maybe I'm thinking of my Chihuahua screwing his talking Afflac duck. Whatever the case. You have made me have to go now.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2008 10:00:05 PM
uhm, OK. Couldn't you let them have some peace? How'd you like it if I came and took pictures of you having sex? ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2008 01:15:52 PM
I feel like a perv. Great "timing".

Dr. Zhivago - good grief!

Terms of use.
If I showed two people in this pose, it would be disqualified.
If the female was human, the male a Mountain Goat - Disqualified.
If the male was human, the female a Mountain Goat - Disqualified.
Well, I guess this is ambiguous. Never mind ...

Photos of a pornographic nature?! ;o) What intrusion into a private moment... That said, very crisp.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2008 08:37:04 AM
LOL ... sure didn't expect to see this! Actions aside, it's a good shot ... DOF is good, lighting on the happy couple is good, nice and sharp ... 8

Hey. A little privacy here! ;-)

01/01/2008 08:10:34 PM
Well, I fear this is probably happening to your score because of the subject matter. But, kudos to you for braving the snow and capturing them. 8 + 1 to counter all of the low votes based on immaturity.

01/01/2008 07:15:57 PM
Good "action" shot.
