In our July/August double issue, we asked you capture some colourful images of summer. Thank you to everyone who sent us their photographs. We were delighted to receive your vibrant entries snapped in local gardens and woods or exotic destinations. 

Congratulations to our four winners!

Amelie, aged 8, Histon

“This is Curl. He was one of the caterpillars that came through the post. He became a painted lady butterfly. He had a poorly wing and couldn’t fly like his brothers and sisters but we gave him a nice life on oranges and flowers in our living room.

“I was really pleased to get the damselfly in focus because he was so tiny and I kept thinking he would move. However, he stayed still for a bit and was an excellent model”.


Poppy, aged 9, Lossiemouth

"We took these photos in our local woods and found lots of bright purple heather." 

Seren, aged 9, East Leake

“I grew this sunflower this summer and I took this colourful photo of it with a bee.”

Ned, aged 8, Darlington

"It is a wasp nest in a laurel tree in our garden. We love the contrast of the greens against the greys of the nest. The wasps are usual too- they are more black than yellow. "
