I think we need some subcategories taken out of the pet category. How is a dragonfly, a moth, a seagull, birds in the wild, an insect, etc......how are these PETS?

Well Terry, Perhaps they are looking for a chance for the image to compete. They probably don't have a chance in the proper category.

well you know I love my insects Sandy but I would not take one for a walk - folk really do need to take more care in their selection of catagory and sub catagory - people will start selecting the other choice just because they have put it in the wrong catagory regardless of how good it is. imho

Some people do have insects as 'pets', same goes for amphibians and reptiles. So with a lot of those I give them the benefit of the doubt, especially if the picture also looks like it's made in a 'controlled environment (actually, I don't think it would be fair for a picture of for example a pet snake that has been arranged on a nice branch, ith a nice background, with expert artificial lighting etc. to compete with pictures of snakes taken in the wild).
Still, I agree there's a lot of pictures in that category that obviously don't belong there. I've never heard of anyone keeping seagulls for example, and even if someone did, I'm quite sure they would be ringed if allowed to fly free...
