BLUE-SKY THINK­ING

By: Les­ley Hex­tal

Where: York­shire “We were as­ton­ished to see this field, as blue as the sky. I think the flow­ers are agri­cul­tural lupins, grown for fod­der, but have never seen them be­fore.”

MATCH­ING EAR­RINGS

By: An­drew Fletcher

PECK­ISH WOOD­PECKER

By: Rob Jer­rard

Where: Budleigh Sal­ter­ton, Devon “This im­age of a ju­ve­nile green wood­pecker was taken in early July (shot through my kitchen win­dow), while it mopped up ants on our drive­way.”

IT’S A BUG’S LIFE

SPOT A FLY­CATCHER

By: Alis­tair and Penny Homer

Where: Black­down, Dorset “This spot­ted fly­catcher nested in ivy on a sy­camore in our gar­den. Since pop­u­la­tions are de­clin­ing, to have a pair breed suc­cess­fully was spe­cial.”

FOR ONE DAY ONLY… By: Ni­cole Ol­effe Where: Wey­bridge, Sur­rey “I was lucky enough to spot and pho­to­graph this mayfly while I took on a stroll along the banks of the tran­quil River Wey, in Wey­bridge, dur­ing Au­gust.”
