Top Shot: On the Lookout | Photograph by Trevor Pottelberg (@trevorpottelberg)
#YourShotPhotographer Trevor Pottelberg was photographing Lake Erie when he captured this massive wave exploding out from the murky depths during the passage of an arctic cold font. “Wow! This is a pretty epic scene to capture,” writes Your Shot producer Matt Adams (@themattadams), who selected this image for the December 13, 2017 Daily Dozen. “You can just feel the sheer force of the wave as it crashes against the wind here. I can only imagine how cold it was when this image was captured and it’s amazing that your camera survived the elements.”

In Chicago, a young boy was photographed walking around his neighborhood with a deer.
The young boy’s neighbor posted this photo on Imgur and wrote this message: “My wife and I took this photo yesterday after seeing this happen for a few days. My wife called the local wildlife rescue group a few towns over. They have a vet on staff and will be picking the animal up today to bring her [to] a forest preserve where she can be looked after and stay out of traffic. I hope she does ok because she was so docile. I wish I could do something for the kid. He’s probably going to miss her.” The boy's incredible kindness, as well as the Imgur user's message, quickly went viral and have been shared all over the internet.
Several days later, the Imgur poster added this update: “An IDNR licensed wildlife rehabilitation group picked up the deer in a horse trailer a few hours ago. They’re the only people who are legally able to treat and shelter a deer in Illinois. Half the neighborhood came out to see it, including the young boy and his mom. I will follow up with the facility to see how the deer is doing soon.” While it is sad that the boy will no longer have his morning companion, support has been overwhelming for the kind boy and for the neighbors who were able to get the deer assistance. “For those of you who are upset about this boys feelings about the deer going away for licensed treatment: His concern was very mature. He had only been walking the deer for a few days and hadn’t named her or tried to claim her as a pet or anything like that. Neither did he shelter her indoors or leave food outside for her which is against the law in our state. He just wanted her to be ok and was relieved to know she would be safe." #Consciousvibrancy

Ruby looks so majestic standing against the snow! Waivers and corrals were released for Dopey yesterday. I can't help but feel disappointed as I was only 31 bib numbers away from the next corral up, and if I could have submitted my time from the rock n Roll half that was like 2 days after the cut off, I would have made it. I know I'll never be fast, but I still can't help but feel down about it. On a brighter side I did enjoy running with Ruby in the snow this morning. We took it easy, there was a mix between snow packed trail, clear trail, and half clear which is the scariest for me. This is the first day of my last mini Dopey, after this weekend it is just maintenance runs until we go! Oh, and it's Star Wars day! #Ruby#rescuedog#adoptdontshop#labmix#puppy#dogsofinstagram#dogsofcolorado#runningdog#runningRuby#adventuredog#snow#winterwonderland#colorado#nature
