WILDLIFE BABIES and Young
Submissions Close - Monday June 3, 2013
Let's celebrate Spring! Our judges are looking for photos of the babies and young of all wildlife including Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians, Insects and other phyla. As always, special consideration will be given to the degree of difficulty in capturing the subject and the rarity of the animal. Photos can be of babies and young with parent(s) or by themselves. Subjects can be either wild or captive.
