What a way to start this thread Grid! If I was bit wiser I would not put my post immediately following your spectacular salvo!

Here are my top five for May 2020. Most of them are taken very close to home (COVID times)!


This next 2 were taken a short drive from home on the Eramosa River.



Fiddleheads, a sure sign that Spring has sprung!


Spring is all about wild flowers, so here's another one!


Cheer!

I always look forward to seeing this thread because throughout the month so many spectacular images are posted it's interesting to see what makes the cut. Personally I had a tough time picking 5 this month. Not because my images are spectacular, but because I shot more this month than I have in years. I'm going to blame it on the lockdown and too much time on my hands. That said, here's my offering for May...

One of the good things about lockdown, for me, is it has "forced" me to look at things I'd never normally photograph on my doorstep.

I got in two trips last month, so picking just 5 was a bit hard.

First two are from my first trip last month to Kenai Lake.

The last three are from my trip Denali National Park

The yurt I rented outside of the park.

This is the Denali Highway, it's a mostly unmaintained 135 mile road. I am hoping to do a 5 day trip down it sometime this summer.

After spending most of the month photographing the same pair of pigeons I managed to break out my rut in the last week... but managed to find a new rut of bees on flowers! Hopefully the easing of lockdown will provide more opportunities and inspiration in June!

My kids have affectionately named every wood pigeon that comes into our garden 'Pigington' (see the Paddington movies for the reference)

Some prep work for my camera clubs May comp on the subject of 'Earth Wind & Fire', this was deemed too natural history to qualify so now it is an option along with some other in the same style for June's 'triptych to montage' comp.

Thought this was one of the multitude of house sparrows that we have frequenting our garden. I only realised it wasn't a sparrow when I started editing, the tail and the eyes gave it away... my first official spotting of a dunnock.

My new rut... bees on flowers, taken with a telephoto rather than using macro. I just love getting them coming in to land!

My place of work has been closed for three weeks now, This gave me the opportunity to take more photos than usual and the weather has been great for getting outside. All images except the last were taken locally due to the lockdown.

Love the swan and cygnet shot, and the lone cygnet is a special shot!
Thanks a lot Chris.
I took them last Tuesday on my bike ride to my local nature park. I went on the Monday (Bank Holiday), I was there at 7am and there was already four photographers there with their Monster lenses in full camo. On the Tuesday i had the place to myself :biggrin:

Got out a bit this past month with the camera, nothing too crazy. Wildlife park, and a sunset hike.

May 2020 has meant more photography than less despite the lockdown (which has partially been lifted). Most of these are posted elsewhere but my favourite 5 for May:

Discovered this lonely tree in a rape field on one of the local walks:

The first place to visit post lockdown would be the deserted mediaeval village of Wharram Percy. Only the church exists now, the fields behind would have many houses. The people of the village like many in this area was blighted by the black death. It felt only right to visit this place and ponder the horrors that they went through.

On our lockdown walks I have seen many birds and insects, this peacock butterfly providing lots of colour;

And finally a trip to Bolton Abbey and the weather was perfect and the place was its usual picturesque self:
