Welcome to the thirty-sixth edition of the Screenshot of the Week!

To start with, congratulations to the winner of the previous contest! Marc_Alx's submission of a group of flamingos in took the top spot with 14 upvotes!

Last week's winning screenshot

To submit a screenshot, simply post it as an answer to this question, but please take note of the following:

  • One screenshot per post, and one post per person, please!
  • Limited picture modifications are allowed, such as cropping, simple filters, and blurring of identifying info such as names, but not adding other images or text.
  • To ensure a fair playing field, please post screenshots you've taken yourself rather than ones you found online.
  • Stack Exchange’s Code of Conduct still applies - so if it would be unacceptable to post normally, it’s unacceptable here.

Also, try to avoid pictures that include spoilers. We want everyone to be able to enjoy this contest, so the less spoilers the better.

How long will the contest run?

We will accept submissions for a week, until 19:00 UTC of 2021-04-12, then have a second week-long period where only voting will be accepted. This is to give every submission, even those posted at the end of the first week, a chance to be voted on by everyone.

After the end of the second week, at 19:00 UTC of 2021-04-19, we will count upvotes only to determine the winning screenshot, which will be featured for a week on the main site's photo widget.


Theme

The theme for this week is giant monsters, so give us your biggest, most fearsome screenshot you can find this week!

As a reminder, we're always accepting suggestions for themed weeks, and have compiled that suggestion process into a question of its own.

    How was last week's winner decided? Both top answers had 13 votes when the contest ended. Is it determined by the first vote that tips the balance? – Joachim Apr 6 at 12:16

    @Joachim If there's a tie when we're writing up the new post then the team usually just casts a tiebreaking vote which is what I did. – Unionhawk Apr 6 at 13:51

    I've heard the sea creatures in subnautica were scary, but I was not expecting that – Wondercricket Apr 9 at 18:13

    @Wondercricket the in-game description for them is, in short, "underdeveloped brain, mainly muscle, bones, teeth, and rage" – Kaizerwolf Apr 9 at 20:21

  • Since meeting those Reaper Leviathans up close, I am not that scared anymore of anything else in the game. Only recently I went below 900 meters, and met (one of) the Sea Dragon Leviathan(s), which seemed almost silly in comparison (might have to do with the fact it kept swimming inside solid rock). Anyway, you did it! :) – Joachim Apr 10 at 7:18

    Man... Despite the reputation FF13 got, this brings back memories. When the Adamantoise becomes more difficult on Grand Pulse, I spent a few days fighting that thing trying to get the related trophy. The final fight went on for 2.5 hours. It wasn’t until after I beat it did I learn it was susceptible to Death... – Wondercricket Apr 10 at 13:35
  • @Wondercricket i remember when first playing beating an Adamanchelid in Eden as the mandatory fight there and feeling i could now kill any of them i charged against the Adamantoise here thinking it was the same and not only bring surprised by it being bigger but also being deadlier, and then when i got back to Grand Pulse seeing that there was 2 types – Memor-X Apr 12 at 0:08

    Not sure if this counts as "Giant Monsters" - the sense of scale kinda gets lost a bit with tokens. – Robotnik Apr 8 at 1:30
