We received a superb level of entries again this month, along with a wide range of subjects to suit the theme of nature. You submitted all kinds of close ups, scenes, wildlife and flora photos.

After much consideration we decide to go for something a little quirky as the winner. As kids most of us went tadpole catching and this was probably one of the earliest connections most of us had with nature. Here the boy has his jar ready to collect tadpoles, but it's empty and to its side are two probably unexpected fish. We thought this displayed a great sense of humour, and as first prize Baden receives a versatile Vanguard Alta Pro 263 AT tripod.

Second place goes to the stunning macro photo by KTrueman of a bug he found on a coastal path. We like the incredible detail, but also the vibrant colours and droplets on the surface. Keith wins a Vanguard Heralder 38 camera bag.

Congratulations to the winners and short-listed, and a special thanks to everyone who entered.
