to choose the best one. Thanks to the talented DUers on snapping such amazing pics, and then sharing w/ the world.

I voted for the spider, it's eyes are really focused very well and I've never seen a spider look so intently...

I'll probably go with the horses, they are magnificent, but I can identify with all those other brilliantly photographed creatures as well.

These contests are always so difficult to choose, but this one seemed hardest for me.

Also, I don't know how I missed the first round but I'm glad I saw the finals before they ended.

Great work everyone!

There were 30 entries in the preliminaries and they were equally as engaging as these ten finalists.

It's not really about the competition; it's about sharing a vision, a split second in time or something you've seen that won't ever be there again.

Hats off to everybody who enters this or any other exposition. Nothin' but the best!

I mean it -- I really look forward to them. Even though it's always hard as hell to decide, looking at all these pics is pure joy.
