The great outdoors is filled with things that are often overlooked by most people. People these days spend so much time hurrying through life, tied to their cell phones, that they often forget to look around and see the overlooked things in nature that make our world so special. In this challenge, we’re asking you to help us in reminding people that there is beauty everywhere — sometimes you just need to do a little searching for it. Perhaps your photos for this challenge will be of something tiny like the mushrooms you see above – only a few millimeters wide, or maybe they will be of something vast like an amazing wilderness area that is seldom visited. Whatever you choose as your subject, we can’t wait to see!

On Wednesday, April 10th (at 2pm EST, so be sure to submit your entries before that time, even at 1:59pm!) we’ll choose 1 judge’s choice winner, 5 runner ups, and 1 audience choice winner & share their entries here on, announcing the winners by the following day! Send your friends to this page to leave a comment-vote for your entry to win the audience choice award!

Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter by signing up on the right sidebar, so that you can keep updated about the challenge winners and our upcoming challenges!

Here are the quick & easy Challenge rules – please read them carefully so that you can be entered in the running to win!

  • To enter the challenge, create a new blog entry titled “Wild Weekly Photo Challenge – Overlooked” and Copy and Paste the html code in the box below into your blog entry (you’ll need to click the code tab when pasting it into your blog) to let your followers know that you’re participating in the Photo Challenge so that they can join in the fun too.
  • Take one or more photos of something outdoors that fits the challenge theme of Reflections! Watermarks and signatures are fine, but shouldn’t cover the entire image. Large images are the best kind and while their are no mandatory size requirements, thumbnail sized photos just can’t show off your talent the way a nice big image like the one you see above can.
  • The Audience Choice Winner will be decided based upon which entry below receives the most comments on this page – tell your friends and family to come and reply with a comment below your entry here on! Everyone can vote for as many entries as they like.
  • Comment on this page with the URL to your blog entry! After 7 days, we will announce the 1st Place Winner, Audience Choice Winner, and 5 Honorable Mention Winners, all of whom will have their winning shots with a link to their blog featured here on
  • Be sure to visit the blogs of other people entering the Weekly Challenge & leave them some comment love too!
  • Both professionals and amateur photographers are welcome to participate, and both stand an equally good chance of winning!

    I too like this challenge, liking macro photography very much. Every week there is a great challenge. I appreciate it.

    • Mango Tree

      This is cool. Looks like the tree it’s being overlooked by people, but people are not being overlooked by it… ;o)

    • Etol Bagam

      Very tall trees on this forest, under the right proportions… I like the shot!

      Great picture of the whelks. I love the way your photos give perspective. You might not have a macro lens, but it gives a very real feel of their size & environment.
