OK, since we only had one entry, we will bend the rules a little THIS TIME and extend the entry deadline to this coming Saturday, 2/7 at midnight. 

As always, the themes for each month are open to your own interpretation, so as long as the subject can reasonably fit the theme, that's fine; it's very lenient. What's most important here is having fun, being creative, and the pursuit of good photography. You don't necessarily need a fancy camera to take great photos; it's all about choosing an interesting subject, good composition, and using light to your advantage. 

C'mon folks, don't hold back; let's see those photos!

I didn't get much chance to shoot in January, but I think I caught a buck leaving an "old" girlfriend, and looking for a "new" one earlier in the month.

A bit of a stretch on the theme, but at least its something.

Speaking of "a bit of a stretch," if I couldn't come up with any better ideas, I was going to use this photo I took of a Sambar stag 2 weeks ago. Never could get him to turn and look toward me, so I wasn't entirely satisfied with it.

"New" set of antlers...

I was working on panning w/ motion blur, which is (obviously) new to me.  But I managed to get the buck semi-sharp with the surroundings (and "old" doe) blurred:

"Looking for a new gal:"

I didn't care for the blurred out fence either.
