Hi everyone and welcome to September’s photo challenge :smiley:

Nice one @Josyjo for winning August’s photo challenge with a “tide’s out” snap of Essex, what a fantastic first Community post! You can check out the winning photo here

She’s chosen September’s theme to be Animals and wildlife, which can be anything from the birds in your garden, to walks with the dog(s), or whatever catches your eye :camera_with_flash: 

To kick things off, here’s a very cute snap taken by Sally from the PP team of some ducklings, next to the canal… :heart_eyes:

ducklings hanging out!

Looking forward to seeing everyone’s snaps!

What is the photo challenge?
Each month, Community members take photos based on a theme and share them in a thread.
The winner is the photo with the best feedback and likes from other members, and the winner can then pick the next month's theme.

I'm very proud of the bumper harvest from our patio pot apple trees - six whole apples! I know!! One spider was so amazed he just had to check one of them out...

Love the photo @stephenrand, the colours are very autumnal :smiley:  captured a treat! 

I wouldn’t, however, now be able to eat that apple without panicking that I’m crunching down on a spider :sweat_smile:

What’s worse than finding a maggot in your pear?

Finding half a maggot! I just spotted this little critter in time and went excavating...

Btw, anyone see the 12 final pics for Countryfile calendar, with the theme “Bright and beautiful”? Really stunning 👍👍👍👏👏👏👏👏. After last years dormouse debacle, it was nice to see. I voted for Nectar Inspector, as fitted the theme superbly 👍👍👏👏👏👏👏

Pigeon and a View

 

Pigeon in the window! (not my window. Or my pigeon)

How on earth did it find you then!? Homing pigeon perhaps?

Thanks Bev.

Don't like seeing the little birds get taken, but the sparrowhawk has to eat too. Just nature , isn't it.

I’m the same. Hate to see anything eating anything else, but have to accept it’s nature, exactly Ange, but stunning stunning bird 👍👍👍👍👏👏👏👏

I agree with Bev, great action pic. I have seen Sparrowhawks in action but never actually seen them catch their prey. 👍👍
