All creatures... honorable mention

This week's runner-up is Bill Hughes for his picture titled "A Dog's Best Friend, a Fire Hydrant." Hughes took this picture with a Nikon D40 during Artscape when he found the lucky dog getting a drink from a leaking hydrant."Photographing animals acting naturally is often hard to do, whether you are in the wild or photographing a pet. Hughes was in the right place and had his camera ready for the unexpected."
