"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

I like how the grain flowers seem both backlit and highlighted at the same time.

What would you call that in a title? The nature of hunger. The nature of spring...

Yes, an abstraction of nature.

Quite majestic.

The Nature of Squirrel's

That is just fantastic. The interpretation of the squirrel's anthropomorphic state of mind lends your image a certain external factor that rises above the rest.

Congrats Pondrader, you are this week's winner for The Nature Of Squirrels.
The runner-up is AirFrogUSMC.
Special thanks to everyone for participating and keeping the thread lively with entries!

Gosh Thank You, I snapped this shot a couple days ago on a very stormy day in Minden Ontario Canada. I was trying for a shot earlier and got your normal Red Squirrel shot, This time the snow was really coming down very hard and the snow was piling up on him very quickly. it was all over in 20 seconds. This image has something that people seem to relate to. Thanks to Tom for poking me to put him in the contest. I had forgotten about this little bit of fun. Thank's Jeff .....Congrats to everyone
