    My vote:

    1st Place: Entry number 5: As the topic is 'my beloved monster' you are expecting something big and bad, but seeing the little plant eating terror on is really cute :)

    2nd Place: Entry number 7: He looks mean and hungry... What can I say more, definitely only a 'monster' the owner can love :)

    3rd Place: Entry number 8: Awesome photo...

    Awesome!! That sounds like a plan... This contest was so much fun Ryan, funny to see what everyone thinks of the pic's without the owners names. Cheers for the idea :)

    That's a pleasure. :p

    I just wanted to encourage more people to take more photo's, share them with people and hopefully learn something. Last time we tried a photo contest we didn't have anonymous entries so everyone was a bit confused.
