Hi All,

December's Theme of Portraits/Head Shots had a lot of participants with excellent entries. Steve had the unenviable job of narrowing it down to three favorites this month.

Bragging rights this month go to:

Ist Place: Loi Nguyen, "Bison Portrait"

2nd Place: Haseeb Badar, "Beauty of a Male Tiger"

3rd Place: Mike Poole, "Curious Mom"

Congrats to Loi, Haseeb, and Mike!

Looking forward to seeing everyone's Animalscapes for January.

Rachel, Steve and Morkel<strike></strike>

Nice work guys, but Loi's portrait was just outstanding, but a great series of images posted. :cheers:

Keep the hard work coming folks, tough perhaps in the Winter months for some of us, but just have in the back of your minds about 'pushing yourselves', as that will come up this year. :w3
