The Oxford Mail Camera Club have been exploring the wildlife that lies on their doorstep in this week’s competition theme of ‘garden nature’.

Even though we are confined to our homes and a daily walk, Camera Club members are finding new and creative ways to still capture brilliant pictures.

This week, pictures of garden flowers, birds and squirrels have been sent in.

Tine De Luca sent in a brilliant snap of the super moon glowing pink with a silhouette of tree branches completing the mystical image.

Sarah Mason and Diane Braggs also took beautiful sunset and sunrise pictures from their gardens.

If you do not like spiders it is time to avert your eyes as Luke Chambers sent in a creepy and yet pretty picture of a little spider up close.

Jools Parker has taken a great picture of a little ladybird climbing through the grass and Emily Bowlby has taken a snap of a hover fly collecting pollen from a flower.

Jeff Higgs captured a great image of birds sharing a birdbath; however, Lesley Adams has taken a picture showing a pigeon taking far less graceful bath as it fumbles around in the water.

Becca Collacott captured a beautiful and very cute picture of a squirrel enjoying her garden and Ness Ling also took a picture of a squirrel climbing in the trees.

There have been many entries of bright colourful flowers taken on walks and from the garden like Marga Serrano Blanco’s picture of wildflowers on her walk.

Shez McKenchnie, on the other hand has taken a dark picture of a silhouette of a blackbird.

It is the Easter Bank Holiday this weekend and although we will not be able to leave the house, we can still take pictures.

The theme for next week’s Oxford Mail Camera Club competition is ‘Easter’.

Send in your Easter pictures of chocolate eggs, garden hunts and time in isolation with family to the Camera Club Facebook page.

The winner of this week’s ‘garden nature’ theme will be announced in tomorrow’s paper. In the meantime, keep sending us your snaps.
