So the fifth week of Just for fun themed Animals has ended. After a slow start we ended with 23 images but a couple of entries that where more Just 4 fun than Animal
Zoe Zebra by Peter Lawrance
Have thought about it and what harm can it do by entering it. It is after all, Just for Fun. Spent ages in the garden trying to capture something.
We don’t have pets,
The birds have flown away
Even the amorous pigeons have given up.
The creepy crawlies have crept and crawled out of sight
The bees and other flying things have gone to ground
The pesky squirrel has given up being a pest.
So out came our pet Zebra, Zoe.
Feed Me by Alan Wardropper
I went into the garage and found these two Old Spanners feeding their brood , I bolted into the house and secured my camera and took the photo.
I hope with all the torque about it being just for fun the rules are adjustable to be able to include this ?

A Swan And Its Reflection

Not an easy one so this is a bit ordinary.
Florence And Ffion, The Barlestone Coos
by Andy Freeman
These were taken on my daily wander around the village.
Image has had a bit of a crop, colour and sharpness boosted a bit, and I’ve lost the white house at the back.
by Steve Bexon
The squirrel was part of a group that took it in turns to raid my bird feeders.
Taken on a Canon 7D Mk2 with Canon 100-400 millimetre lens at 300 millimetre f/6.3, 1/320 sec, ISO640.

Here’s Looking At You
by Loz Waterson
original image of the Robin. All that I did was crop it, remove the branch on the left, drop the highlights and lift the
shadows.I also increased the exposure slightly.
Is The Barbers Open Yet
by Andy Freeman
This one has had a crop, a bit of colour and sharpness, and then I messed about with the width and the inner and outer brightness on a vignette
Let’s huddle together
By Paul Steans
I came across these little baby common garden spiders on a strawberry plant leaf.
the distance across the group of baby spiders was about 10 millimetres. They are so tiny!

Orange Tip Butterfly
by Margaret Waterson
This was taken in my garden on April 16th in lockdown
It was taken with a Fuji XT3
I don’t ever remember an orange tip to visiting the garden before
I had to be quick when i saw it finally land on this plant
It stayed there for a very short time and i was lucky to capture it
In photoshop all i did was crop and zoom in a bit to get the butterfly bigger in the frame
took highlights down , added contrast with a little colour balance
Peek A Boo
By Wendy Cook
Taken on Lumix compact and photo was cropped

You Lookin At Me
by Gary Wood
This cat sits on our shed roof most days hoping i’ll take pity on him and give him some food.
Choice him as getting black face against blue sky presented a challenge
