Commons photo challenge

The top photo for the May challenge, “Wild mammals in their native habitat”, was a trio of zebras drinking at a water hole in South Africa.

Second and third place were won by elephants in Nepal.


This startling pair of langurs from India, uploaded by a new user, were only in 13th place.

The top photos for the May “Vehicles of public transportation” challenge were a bridge in India, a pair of nose-to-nose airbuses in San Francisco, and a ski lift in Austria.

Once again, some intriguing images did not make the final cut, maybe because the voting is done on larger images, where detail is more of an advantage than composition or mood.  Below: a viaduct over the Rhine river in Switzerland and a boat on a German lake silhouetted against the moon.
