Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing large mammals in this photo contest with chances to win a Tamron lens and more!

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Philip Thurston for his collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. "My goal with Thurston Photo is to create beautiful imagery and tell stories that provoke positive thought and inspire people to see life from a new perspective. Through my experiences and lessons learnt, I've come to know my purpose in life is to inspire others to live a life of fullness, to help others realize their own dreams, potential and purpose that's worth pursuing with all their heart. I strive to be conscience of this with my words, output and actions. I really do enjoy what I do and I think that makes a big difference with the result. I'm known to happily spend hours straight in the ocean or spontaneously launch myself into the wild in the hope of encountering and capturing this world we have in a new and exciting way."
