About Wildlife in the Garden

In a world where natural habitats are being depleted, gardens are a haven for wildlife. The wild creatures that use our gardens and parks can become familiar companions, or rare and special visitors. These may be creatures that only you are privileged to see - a nocturnal hedgehog for example - or they could be tiny insects that are easily overlooked - except by the keen photographer! They may be creatures you can only see in a wildlife reserve. This category is about all the creatures that enjoy gardens and green spaces, from beetles and butterflies to birds and badgers. Try to capture that moment where ‘wildlife in the garden’ becomes an inspiration.
