Capturing Nature's Best

For its annual competition, Nature's Best Photography magazine invites photographers to submit their most arresting images of animals in the wild, backyards or even the zoo. The gallery below features some of 2007's finalists. The rest of this collection is on view in the magazine and at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History.
