He had been playing for a while in the pond. Something caught his eye and he just sprang instantly to get it. Glad I was shooting at burst mode or I would have never got it! Sigma 50-500mm lens,f/8 at 1/250 sec. Background touched up with PS7.

Thank you EVERYONE. I've been shying away from selling my work, thinking that I'm not good enough. You kind people have given my a little ray of hope that maybe I should give it a try. Once more, "Thank You"

Our family has been through a lot of hardships lately so this ray of sunshine is an extremely nice surprise. Thank you all for your support and comments. I can't express how excited I am!

Thank you all so very much. I truly dont know what to say because I am so overwhelmed at the idea that I actually placed! This is the first competition I have ever entered and really didnt think my talent would ever deserve this kind of recognition. The joy inside my heart makes me feel like Im about to bust apart! Thank you all, once again.
