    Mammals, birds, fishes, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates.

    I’m not so sure that the last one was intended to be included, but they’re technically animals.

    So, no clerics then?

    The intended meaning of class wasn’t in the strict biological sense, but rather meant to imply that wild versions of domesticated animals were OK.

    Having said that, I’m wondering if we should amend the description to remove the list of specifics (dogs…etc.) and perhaps even remove the “of any class.” As the theme suggestor, I’d be OK with shortening it to just “Photos of wild animals. Difficulty: No farm or domestic animals and no pets.”

    Ah. That’s what I get for taking it literally, but I think we’re saying the same thing.

    Are wild animals in a city setting OK? Like a raccoon raiding a garbage can, or a hawk on a highrise?

    olavf, I think so, too.

    Zero, as long as they’re not caged, that’s fine. I have a few “wild animals in my backyard” that I plan to use.

    I would think a Druid would meet the criteria.

    Amphibians are cool, though, right? I’m thinking about using this one: https://plus.google.com/photos/113330053950020592701/albums/posts/5631668674755023986

    Only in wild shape.

    What if my eyes glow an unnatural green in animal form?

    That link takes me to a wall of photos, none of which had an amphibian that I could see at first glance. But, as long as it’s not a pet frog (or otherwise named “hopkin green frog” ;)), I think it’s fine.

    Huh. It pops to the picture for me. But good to know. ‘Twas a toad that wandered across our patio recently.

    Yep, that link works fine. And a quite nice shot it is. Is that your new photography company name? Don’t think I’ve seen that on any of your shots before.

    Thanks 🙂 And yeah, that’s something Kat and I cobbled together late last year. I recently decided that I should really start changing over the watermarks, so I can post slightly larger images in various places.

    When you say “invertebrates” that means bugs and slugs and snails and the like are in, yes? Or are we keeping it to larger critters? I’m good either way… got plenty of both, but I just want to know if I can scour my “bugs” folder or I can leave that for a future contest?
