THIS week’s Camera Club focuses on photos of waterfowl taken across mid Essex and beyond.

The combination of water and wildlife is an irresistable draw to many photographers.

And it gets them out to some of the region’s most picturesque locations.

From Adrian Galley’s stunning image of a grey heron in flight in Braintree to Donna Frost’s picture of a cute coot chick wading about in Maldon, this is a lovely set of photographs.

Our Mid Essex Camera Club is a chance for readers to share their photos online and in print. To get involved simply search for Mid Essex Camera Club on Facebook.

Happy snapping!
