Hi All:

We are pleased to announce the winners of August's Portrait/Head Shots Theme. It was a great month with lots of participation and excellent images. It made the choices all the more difficult for Steve who judged this month! Bragging rights this month go to:

1st Place -Sanjeev Aurangabadkar, "Upside Down" - http://www.birdphotographers.net/for...85-Upside-down (http://www.birdphotographers.net/forums/showthread.php/130685-Upside-down)!

2nd Place - Akos Lumnitzer, "Cute as a Button" - http://www.birdphotographers.net/for...te-as-a-button (http://www.birdphotographers.net/for...te-as-a-button)

3rd Place - Andreas Liedmann, "Snow Cap" - http://www.birdphotographers.net/for...30147-Snow-Cap (http://www.birdphotographers.net/forums/showthread.php/130147-Snow-Cap)

Congrats to Sanjeev, Akos and Andreas!

We're also happy to announce that the October Theme will be "Detail/Patterns." For this theme we're looking for you to take an area of interest such as an animal's coat, skin, hide, eye or other any other area, including a section of the body i.e. tail, paw and creating an image that highlights or depicts the detail or pattern. Forum rules still apply. As always, please use the "Theme" prefix from the dropdown menu. Theme images will be critiqued just like other images and are eligible for IOTW honors.

In the meantime, keep posting images for September's theme, animals with Near Threatened or worse status on the IUCN Redlist.

Rachel, Steve and Morkel
