WELCOME to the latest edition of the camera club – a weekly celebration of all the things we love about living in our special part of the world.

It is hard to believe but summer is all but gone and we are well and truly in the throes of the end of the season.

It would be fair to say that this summer has been a much happier experience than the one we endured 12 months ago but it would be equally fair to claim the summer of 2021 would have been unimaginable in 2019.

So much has happened over the past two years it is sometimes difficult to take stock.

But the beauty of nature remains unchanged – and our intrepid photographers have once again demonstrated their eye for a great shot with this week’s selection of images.

The insect world is a regular favourite of our keen-eyed snappers, and this week we have pictures that capture bees both hard at work and bumbling their way to the office.

Joe Sheridan’s super shot really does capture the movement of the flower’s friend beautifully.

Another particularly striking image from this week’s selection is Rob Cooper’s echinops – also known as a globe thistle – which shows the vivid metallic blue of this gorgeous plant.

And while we’re on the subject of “blue” – this week’s blue moon may have been more orange in colour at times, but it was certainly striking. Brian Roberts captured the whole of it.
