Giant River Otters, they had just wrestled over a fish, and each could claim victory! The action was extremely fast (and taken through glass), so I did my best.

This was such a great capture. I guess focus was the main issue on it, but still, it is a great picture. I did not vote but it is a shame it didn't do better in the ratings. Shots like this are not easy to get.

Heh! This one made me smile in voting - they look a little menacing. Don't think I'd want to get between them while they were wrestling! I think it's a pretty cool take on the challenge, too.

Cute. Did the AF not get there or was the exposure too long to freeze the motion? Either way, good attempt. I would try to bring out some contrast and raise the overall brightness (using curves of course!).

Great timing, nice composition, but too bad about the lack of focus.

Nice image - But too muzzy

Good timing on the capture. For this challenge, you really needed both animals to be clearer. Cropping too tight at the left.
