‘Custodians of Nature’ Be Unique Fortnight Wildlife Photography Competition
Another really exciting activity that we are asking everyone to get involved with, whether you are learning at home or in school, is a wildlife photography competition. Everyone can join in with this just by going out for a lovely family walk in our beautiful local area and taking the best photographs you can. Be nature detectives by looking for the most interesting, colourful, unusual, beautiful or striking things around you. These may be as small as a tiny droplet of water on a blade of grass or a whole panoramic view of a stunning sunset. The subject of the photo (what the photo is of) can be anything natural: plants, trees, animals, insects or even interesting rocks that might have a great pattern or create a super shadow, but remember to keep it wild! That means we can’t accept photos of people, although I’m pretty sure some parents would class you as wild animals! Neither can we allow images of pets, farm or zoo animals as these do not count as local wildlife. How exciting it would be if someone could photograph the bird that their class is named after! Sorry Eagles, that won’t include you due to Covid travel restrictions! The key to spotting and photographing birds is to be very still and quiet so that you don’t scare them away!
This is a really great opportunity to get out and about in the fresh air as long as we are staying local, following the lockdown rules. The competition will be officially judged and there will be prizes for the best photographs from each class - so what are you waiting for? Get outside, get looking and get clicking! Please email your photographs to me by Friday 26th February.
