March: Wildlife in the Garden


Jude is having a garden photography challenge for 2016, and this month theme is wildlife. Living in the UK, wildlife bigger than insects, is quite elusive, there are foxes in my neighbourhood but I haven’t seen one for years and only ever late at night. We also have frogs, toads and hedgehogs, but anytime I’ve seen one, I’m way too slow to think about a camera.  A pond creates captive subjects, particularly if those subjects are a bit peckish, and at Marwood Hill carp and ducks are happy side by side when there’s food about.


Jude may just say that captive isn’t wild, and she’ll have to take my word for it that there’s a big garden around the pond!
