Some of the most photogenic creatures aren't always the easiest to access. Above our heads, birds battle for territory while insect thrive in high-altitude environments or the tree trunks and branches that we pass by every day. Most of us would never get to witness this world if it wasn't for the ingenuity of the photographers who focus their lens on these fascinating microcosms. Branch out, and show us what you find.

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
