Field of dreams
Four spotted chaser basking in the sun
Goldfinch enjoying the spring sunshine
Autumnal reflections by the Leeds & Liverpool canal, Lancashire
Once the site of an industrial mill pond in the North West of England until that is, nature reclaimed it
Bank vole enjoying a meal
Heron about to strike for a meal
Wandering amongst the bluebells
Deer hiding behind a tree in Richmond Park

Picture the scene, you're stood in front of a magnificent vista and all you can think about is encapsulating the view before your eyes.
