Two Folders Open
We are continuing to offer you two theme folders to submit your regular photos to. Please do make sure your photos are taken at a zoo
; if you're not sure what to submit, please review the group rules Flying Animals
Animals able, or known for flying. This lncludes: bats, flying squirrels, flying lemurs, birds, insects, etc. Basically, any animal capable of self-sustained flight or gliding. It doesn't have to be flying in the picture, just the species able to fly. Omnivores
An Omnivore is a species that is a consumer of a variety of material as significant food sources in their natural diet. These foods may include plants, animals, algae and fungi.
Omnivores often are opportunistic, general feeders with neither carnivore nor herbivore specializations for acquiring or processing food, and are capable of consuming and do consume both animal protein and vegetation. Many omnivores depend on a suitable mix of animal and plant food for long-term good health and reproduction.
Examples of species that are omnivores:
Chimpanzee, pigs, badgers, bears, coatis, hedgehogs, opossums, skunks, squirrels, raccoons, chipmunks, mice, rats, cassowarys, chickens, crows and related corvids, keas, rallidae, and rheas. In addition, some lizards, turtles, fish, such as piranhas and catfish, and invertebrates are also omnivorous. Call for Admins
We are still looking for a few active members who would be willing to vote on a few pictures every week or so. If you, like me, remember what this group has been and would like to see those standards return please send me a message with a short 'why I would like to be an admin' explanation. As I said, I will not entrust the group to anyone I am uncertain will respect our quality and members - but I know we have many wonderful members who would be an asset to the group. Please include thumbnails of you best work, especially any feature folder shots, in the message to show you understand the standards we hold those submissions to.
We need members who can devote time to voting on folder submissions AT LEAST once every two weeks!!! As well as answering any questions and providing feedback as requested by our members. This is our main concern and we will introduce other duties later as needed or desired.Submission Rules
You may submit 2 photos per week into the bi-weekly theme and 1 photo per week into the featured folder. The current bi-weekly theme is Herbivores.
Here is how to submit a photo properly:
1. Join the club as a member.
2. Open our gallery and click on 'Submit to this Gallery.'
4. Choose which folder you would like to submit to by using the drop down menu.
5. Pick your photo, and you're set!Featured Folder
This gallery is for photos that represent the best of our member's work. Staff members will vote on these photos, it takes two accepts to be included in this gallery. Be sure to submit your best work because we will accept nothing but the best. One submission per week.
Lions, tigers and wolves each take up 10% of the featured gallery, which is a lot of photos of just these animals. We therefore will be being more selective when voting on featured folder submissions for these types of animals. Please take this into account when choosing a shot to submit to the featured folder, as lions/tigers/wolves are taking up a third of this gallery! Our Affiliates
