This Weeks #GVPics Champion!

This Weeks #GVPics Champion!

Cats, birds, whales and more animals were beautifully captured in action in this week’s Instagram competition! Although I know I’ve said it before, picking only ten pictures out of all the beautiful, clever and amusing #gvpics photographs, is SO HARD.

Check out our winner and runners up and remember to keep tagging your pictures with #gvpics for a chance at becoming next week’s champion!

The runners-up:

Taking a stroll in the sun, dressed in a warm parka for good measure.

This power sheep mom doesn’t care for sidewalks.

Seems we ran into a #sheep gang today. Fortunately they let us pass. #Iceland #familytravel #gvpics

Jazzing up the hay making, pink all the way.

The Ptarmigan always dresses to match the environment.

The Lupines doing their best to cover the desert.

Waking up is hard to do, we understand sleepy cat.

Everytime I open up a bag of chips on sea this guy shows up.

And the winner is:

This photo had us Grapeviners cracking up. We’re pretty sure the no animals were harmed from the making of the photograph and that the sheep is on the right side of the fence now. Congrats, @Julli Jonssen! There’s a T-shirt and Grapevine goodie bag waiting for you at our office (or coming to you in the mail).
