We received over 60 entries this month, but as usual only a limited number of slots were available. Unfortunately, there were some great photos that did not make it to the final round of voting. If anyone would like know how their photo could have ranked higher please send me a pm. A large majority of entries could have benefited from a little noise reduction.

Having a hard time deciding on your favorite?

Comparing the original size of each image can help and is recommended. Photos should not only be judged by the chameleon displayed, but also on composition and image quality.

Is it just me, or are the pics getting better and better each month? I'm having such a difficult time deciding. Where I used to really like a couple, now I'm finding 4 or 5 that I would love to vote for. WOW! Congratulations to everyone!

Hey thanks everybody! Once again was unexpected as there were some excellent photos this month. Congrats to all the winners.

I told the King of his win and he just gave me the squinty eyed look of contempt.
