Submissions continue to roll in for National Geographic's 2014 Photo Contest, and we've been wowed by the spectacular wildlife photography entered so far.
Almost 5,000 photos have been submitted in the three categories of people, places and nature.
The contest closes on October 31, so you still have a few days to submit your photos, even if you're not a photography pro. Last year there were more than 7,000 entries from 150 countries. And if the photos we've seen are any indication, the judges this year are going to face a tough decision.
To submit your own photos, go to National Geographic's photo contest website. You can also see more entries by browsing the Nat Geo editors' top picks every week.
