It's that time again, and April has been a bumper month for both critters and wild flowers. Hope you enjoy seeing what I have spotted and captured during this month.

As always Carol the time and effort (and huge amounts of skill) that you put into these montages is fantastic. What a wonderful line-up of tiny beast, beautifully presented.

When I see what you have captured in a month like this I am astonished, Carol: I guess I take only a very small fraction of the number of shots you manage.
But what a cornucopia of beautiful shots, all presented in 'marvellous montage makeovers.'
With so many I doubt if I could select a favourite and it would seem iniquitous to do so anyway.
Very well done on another wonderful month's record.
Keep up the good work.
