Challenge: Baby Animals (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: Favorites - Ribbons
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS
Location: Tampa, FL
Date: Aug 8, 2010
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/80
Galleries: Humorous, Animals
Date Uploaded: Aug 8, 2010

I had planned to enter a baby ocelot photo, an otter, or maybe one of the tiger cubs, but wound up using a photo I took way back on 4/21/06... before I started shooting in RAW.

Very happy with the result (especially since I suggested the challenge), but I was hoping the topic would prove more popular given the subject matter and no date restrictions.

"I was hoping the topic would prove more popular given the subject matter and no date restrictions."

I wonder if that's because people have been so turned off by the challenges of late that they are just being ignored. Well that's my excuse anyway. I first learned about the no date restriction when I read your notes. Maybe next time suggest putting a big red banner that says NO DATE RESTRICTION! Seriously though, I bet more would have entered as a result.

Congratulations, Shannon! As to your comment in your photog's notes--I'm sure I would have entered, but I don't think I've EVER taken a photo of a baby animal!
