Members of our camera club have again been showcasing their ability to take beautiful snaps of wildlife in Watford and beyond as they tackle their latest challenge.

'Wildlife in winter' is the new theme for our talented photographers and you can enjoy the first selection of the wonderful pictures they've captured in the current cold spell, or previously, across these pages.

The Watford Observer Camera Club is a Facebook-based group.

It is open to all photographers, from those who snap pictures on their phones to professionals who capture perfect shots with specialist equipment.

Every four weeks usually, members of the camera club are set a new challenge, a theme is selected and then the work starts for our talented photographers.

Search for Watford Observer Camera Club on Facebook. Ask to join the group and we’ll accept you.
