If I Could DD: APN Photography
Do you ever wish you could choose the featured Daily Deviations?
Your wish just came true!
The latest Community Feature Project focuses on your DD ideas, in "If I Could DD".
Animals, Plants & Nature Photography is my absolute favorite of all DA's categories, showing nature's beauty in all it's facets. Because there really are so many subcategories, I went a bit overboard with browsing them :blush: Still, I at least tried to limit myself by browsing for deviants who've submitted photos in the past 12 weeks. These are my favorite photos of those deviants I think worthy of a DD. I've only chosen deviants eligible for a DD according to :faq18:
Want to see more of these kinds of features? Check out Community Feature Project: If I Could DD! - where APN CV JenFruzz will collect them all in the comments :la:

Hello my dearies :heart: !
If you ever considered joining an rp-group I would like to poke you into the direction of Fawnlings :heart:. However, to get started you could consider having a (FREE!) ticket for a quite rare design of a brindle fawnling for blackwood :la::eager:.
Here goes the beautiful boy:

For all information how to enter the raffle, you can just read here: !!Brindle Fawn Giveaway!!
And here a little feature for some awesome animal-photographers :rose:
Yes, this is where I get most of my references from. I found most of them in World-of-Wildlife as well as TheFavouriteShowcase. Really worth joining/watching if you love animals :) arent they just beautiful!
