    I don't know if these are "cute" ;) but they make me smile :D

    The Chameleon
    My friend owns a "Proud" chameleon, so I decided to take a "proud" picture of it ;) A beautiful, spot on focus of the eye :D
    OnePlus 6 / Pro Mode / ISO 400 / Exposure Time 1/50s / Edited with Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop & Snapseed / No lens

    The Kitty
    My other friend has her Kitty Kat beside her and when I visit her, the Kat always loves to say hi to me by posing herself for me for her photo session :D I took this shot and got a real close up of her. Before her shot, she purred to me, "I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. Deville" :D
    OnePlus 6 / Auto / ISO 4000 / Exposure Time 1/13s / Edited with Adobe Lightroom / No lens

    The Grasshopper
    I was out for a bike ride trying to capture some sweet macro shots and came across a grasshopper chilling on a plant. Looked very calm and wasn't afraid that I came close to it. Took out my OnePlus phone and shot the perfect picture :D
    OnePlus 3T / Pro Mode / ISO 100 / Exposure Time 1/710s / Edited with Adobe Lightroom / BC Master 15x Macro Lens

    My photography style is catching moments, especially around sunset, I call myself a sunset hunter [e]1f609[/e]
    So if a happy dog runs into my frame I just shoot it .
    So this is my approach to animal photography, hope you like.

    Crazy dog during perfect sunset. I love the reflection and the energy of the dog.
    Oneplus 3t, no edits at all, auto mode.
    One of the last pics taken with my 3, I Loved that phone!

    This one was one of the first taken with the oneplus 6. I thought I would miss the 3t but the 6 made me forget my old phone very fast.
    Oneplus 6, once again no edits at all, auto mode.

    Pic 3 - loading... - [e]1f603[/e]

    Looking forward to the upcoming pics
    Love to see the different approach you all have, that's what photography is about : catching your vision of the beautiful things around you. Happy hunting!

    A brief visit to my backyard. Shot on OnePlus 6, edited on Vegas Studio, no 3rd party lens. This is a quick view of Happy Hour at my house. When the hummingbirds (this one is a juvenile rufous hummingbird which is migratory here) get done feeding in the wild many of them come back to our feeders and get ready for night. I was lucky to catch this one all by herself. It's amazing what's out there when you look up from the screen.

    Animal Photo Competition


    Camera: OnePlus 6 (no lens)
    Subject: Dudley (Male Siberian Cat)
    Editing Software: Polarr Pro

    This is a shot I took of my cat Dudley. He must think he's the head of the household, perching wherever he pleases - in this case, in front of the fireplace. Nonetheless, he is a very affectionate cat (despite his glare in this picture). His blue eyes are truly awesome! Best of luck to all entries!

    Never Settle,

    This is great :) I might try to get some shots :D

    Edit: I finally did, and here's my submission

    Shot on OnePlus Part 6 Contest_002.jpg

    Device name: OnePlus 5
    Camera: OnePlus Camera - Auto Mode (2x Zoom)
    Editing software used: Adobe Lightroom
    3rd-party lens: None

    Where did I capture this video/pictures and what does it show about my world?: I captured this image right outside my college. This picture shows that humanity is headed towards darkness (Yup, I intentionally edited the picture to convey this message). I'm saying that because someone did a cruel act to that animal. If you notice one of the leg of donkey, you'll find a flip-flop on his leg. And he was not comfortable walking while wearing that. I felt sorry for that animal and I was even unable to help him due to the risks of getting hurt. If such activities continue to increase with the same pace, we'll end up in darkness pretty soon. So, if anyone reading this sees someone doing such acts of cruelty, try to stop them.

    IMG_20180720_185835-01 (1).jpeg

    Device name: OnePlus 5
    Camera: OnePlus Camera - Auto Mode
    Editing software used: Snapseed
    3rd-party lens: Apexel Macro Lens

    Where did I capture this video/pictures and what does it show about my world?: I captured it on the floor of our home. If you notice something carefully, you can see that this housefly was actually laying an egg when I was capturing this image. Hundreds and Thousands of births take place around us everyday and we're unable to see them with our naked eyes. Nature has implemented such small things with ease, but we're unable to applaud them. After seeing this, I highly appreciate these small things going around me.

    Oh, and here's another picture of the same housefly. This is when I started chasing it.

    IMG_20180720_184955__01-01 (1).jpeg

    Thanks @David Y. for giving us this opportunity to share some pics and the story behind them :)

    Good luck everyone :)

    I forgot to answer some questions:
    The video is recorded on my Oneplus 5T and directly uploaded to YouTube.

    It's shows one of my pet rats. Great and funny animals with a undeserved bad reputation.
