HOG WILD

by Amogh Gaikwad, age 10

Place: Chandrapur, India

WARBLER WATCH

by Sina Shaikh, age 11

Place: Magee Marsh Wildlife Area in Ohio

ME AND MY SHADOW

by Eve Goddard, age 8

Place: Sidewalk near Eve's home

Wildlife Moment: Eve was walking home from school one afternoon when she noticed a praying mantis on the sidewalk. "It was very still," Eve told us, "So I was able to take lots of photos from many different angles." The judges liked the way Eve captured both the mantis and its shadow in her shot.





GOT MY EYE ON  YOU

by Zaria Wilson, age 11

Place: Riverbanks Zoo in South Carolina

Wildlife Moment: When Zaria visited the zoo's elephants, she was fascinated by their long eyelashes. Zaria turned an ordinary elephant photo into an extraordinary one by zooming in extremely close and focusing only on the elephant's eye.





PICTURE PERFECT

by Christopher Lee, age 12

Place: Olympic National Park in Washington

Wildlife Moment: Christopher and his family were exploring the park when they came across a beautiful stream. He instantly knew that the scene, with its waterfalls and vibrant moss-covered rocks, would make a fantastic photo.





DRIFTING JELLIES

by Agibail Novoselatz, age 11

Place: Sea Life Minnestota Aquarium

Wildlife Moment: Abigail saw lots of sea creatures while she was at the aquarium, but the colorful jellyfish tank really caught her eye. She said, "It seemed like the jellyfish were posing for me. I put my camera against the glass and got the perfect shot!"
