Photography competition at Whisby Nature Park

Whisby Nature Park

The girls are developing a love of photography; they also both love going for a walk round Whisby Nature Park so when Ant sent me a link to a photography competition that the Natural World Centre at Whisby, is running, I thought it was a good excuse to get them out walking on a Sunday afternoon.

It was also a good excuse to get me moving more as well 🙂

I’ve never been all the way round the lake, always opting to wait on a bench or even stay at home while Ant and the girls did the walk but today I went for it and actually really enjoyed it!

We shared the cameras so the following photos are a mixture of mine, Ella’s, Kaycee’s and Ant’s photos.

Here’s one of my favourites from Ant’s Instagram. They saw this caterpillar hanging by its own silk from a branch about 3 metres up.
