Rules that are always applicable are as follows:

  1. One photo per answer, and no more than 5 answers per user per contest.
  2. Post only photos taken by yourself/person with you.
  3. All entries should include a line of text with the location, subject, and date (specificity is up to you).
  4. Refrain from posting sensitive/debatable content
  5. Only upvotes count towards winning.

Rules for May are as follows:

  1. Birds - Pictures of birds
  2. The contest will last the whole month of May and to be clear, we use UTC, just like the site itself.
  3. There is no constraint on when the photo must have been taken.

Suggest a theme for the next contest.

  1. Leave a single comment below in the format THEME - ONE SENTENCE DESCRIPTION
  2. Upvote the comment(s) with the theme you would like to see next month.

Good luck!

A young Southern Grey Shrike (Lanius meridionalis) in my garden on Lanzarote in the Canary Islands, summer of 2019. I've never seen an adult come this close to a human (about 2 meters). It's still learning to fly - you couldn't tell from its cocky pose that only seconds before, its wings were completely tangled in the brushwork!

I didn't know that birds did the "I meant to do that" look too, and not just cats. :-)
