This week’s camera club features an array of wildlife and nature right on our doorstep.

Be it geese on their annual migration, red deer locking antlers, or ladybirds cosying up in a curled leaf, these photos look at animals and insects both little and large - it’s not just us who are readying ourselves for winter.

Gary Davis, Shiela Winwright, Gary Dawkin, Lynn Sampson, Lee Jordan-Bland, Ant Niles, Gary Dawkins, and Richard Mayhew are just a few of our contributors this week who sent in their pics to the Colchester Gazette Camera Club Facebook page.
