Lt. B'Elanna Torres Lorry-Gail Malcom, Gerbils Assemble, Oklahoma Nice tail on that gerbil. Wish his/her eye were open more.
Lt Tom Paris Lorry-Gail Malcom, Gerbils Assemble, Oklahoma Such focus on that darling face! Wish there were a 4th place award or another HM allowed for the POSING category, for this sweet gerbil!
2nd Educational Lt Tom Paris Lorry-Gail Malcom, Gerbils Assemble, Oklahoma Gerbils are curious and intelligent!
Gunther Kim H, Oregon What a cutie pie! Love the "fat tail" in the fat tailed gerbils!
3rd Place AMUSING Alby Gail Payne, Gerbils in Hats, Gloucester, MA A gerbil wearing a hat. Of course. And he wears it so well! Made me laugh.
Tix Gail Payne, Gerbils in Hats, Gloucester, MA That sweet gerbil loves the view from on top of his/her wheel!
Hazelnut, Tix and Honey Gail Payne, Gerbils in Hats, Gloucester, MA Halloween dilemma! That gerbil is about to nibble on the yarn hair under the other gerbil's witch hat!
Fire, Freya and family Gail Payne, Gerbils in Hats, Gloucester, MA Aww! Sweet family!
Theo Tammy Hubbard, Port Moody, BC, Canada That cute gerbil is making his/her soft bed even softer!

Freddie III and G'Herbo Isaiah Lee-Shim, Freddie's Friends, Lexington, Massachusetts Those lovely gerbils are VERY focused from nose to tail!
HM Educational Pinkie and Freddie Jr. Isaiah Lee-Shim, Freddie's Friends, Lexington, Massachusetts Gerbils love to sleep together. Gerbils know that other gerbils make soft pillows. And they love the bonding.
Bonnie and Bianca Jr. Isaiah Lee-Shim, Freddie's Friends, Lexington, Massachusetts Smart gerbils, emerging from inside their cardboard box. A bit difficult to see in the shadows..(ideal for them, of course).
2nd Candid Pretzel Julia Kurokawa, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Darling gerbil busy eating! All the elements of the picture are so subtle, and though the gerbil, the subject, is in sharper focus, it doesn't overwhelm. Lovely.
3rd Artistic Oreo Julia Kurokawa, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Lovely gerbil, busy eating. Wonderful that everything else in the photo, especially that large pumpkin up front right (which is wisely, subtly cut off at the bottom), is in softer focus. I like that focal point (the gerbil) is off-center.
HM Artistic Kringle Julia Kurokawa, Milwaukee, Wisconsin I love the soft, warm brown and tan colors and how the subtle, beige/white, mini pumpkins lead our eye around the photo to the darling, in sharper focus gerbil, enjoying his/her? seeds.
Onyx Artee T. Ryan, Macungie, PA There's Yoga for people; Doga for dogs; what is yoga for GERBILS called?
