Thank you to all the photographers that shared their photos in this photo contest made possible by our friends at Manfrotto. The gallery within this contest gathered a collection of our neighbor species which share the planet with us: from birds to bears - from water animals to flying hunters, this gallery has it all. Be sure to browse all the amazing entries and see how the world is outside the urbanized areas; a gorgeous paradise full of surprises!

A special thanks to the photographers that voted for their favorite shots helping us find the People's Choice and to friend & professional photographer Elena Shumilova for her collaboration as a guest judge!
