March 2012 theme challenge - 'Anything Goes'
A delayed start to the regular monthly competitions this year due to the Zeiss prize competition.
As usual we'll get the ball rolling with a more general theme which has proved quite popular the last couple of years.
The 'anything' refers to any wild living bird, animal or insect or any combination.

2. Date taken to be included in the entry - must at least include month and year.

4. Entries must contain a wild living creature.
5. Location taken to be included and must include county/state and country.
