Water animals and birds provided inspiration for many of our community of photographers. Frances Crickmore captured deer on camera, walking through the water at Minsmere, while Robert McKenna sent in an image of an elusive water vole.

Julie Kemp chose to spotlight a family of swans and cygnets at Lackford Lakes, with other birds in the background, and she also sent in an amazing shot of a Mallard duck surrounded by spray in her garden pond.

The theme for next week’s challenge is Details. The idea is to focus on elements which are part of a scene. Submit your pictures to the iWitness website.
