Last Week’s Favourite

Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Urban Nature. You can view all of the entries here.

This week our winning image is by Linn Smith with this unique photo! Linn explains: “It is an extremely rare opportunity to witness a wild turkey roaming and foraging in a residential neighborhood on a front lawn. Habitat destruction has forced wildlife to come closer to civilization in order to seek food.” Brilliant shot Linn!
