    3rd place: European Peacock, by Joost Thissen, karma score 350:

    European Peacock I made this photo on a sunny October day. I was following the butterfly for some time while it was flying from flower to flower, trying to get a decent shot. but the butterfly kept waving with  it's wings making it difficult to take a photo with the wings fully open. <br />
But suddenly a cloud came for the sun. Lacking the warmth of the sun the butterfly sat motionless on the flower with it's wings fully open. This allowed me to take this photo with the flash acting as replacement for the sun. Belgium,European Peacock,Geotagged,Inachis io

    PRIZE 3: A prize for nature
    ====================
    By good JungleDragon traditions, nature itself is also getting a prize: a 100$ donation to a wildlife charity. This time the donation has been made to this cause:

    http://www.savethelemur.org/

    This year I've seen first-hand how unique yet fragile the Madagascar wildlife is. This organization helps conserve species that are found nowhere else. I hope you agree with this cause.

    CONCLUDING
    ============
    Of course, a big thank you to all who participated. Although only the contest winners have won an actual cash prize, in a way we have all won by massively spreading the beauty of nature, which is exactly what JungleDragon is about. In addition, we have actually helped nature out by means of a donation. I'm proud of you all.

    To those that came for the contest, I invite you to stay and keep sharing your photos. Not only because there will be more contests in the future, but also because you love JungleDragon, nature, and its community. That's what I hope.

    Nature for all, all for nature.

    regards,

    Ferdy
