Bob Coote won first place with his astonishing image of a fly, Peter Baker came second with his picture of a frog posing, and Martin Johnson came third with his photo of a common blue butterfly from Therfield Heath.

Over the summer, the society's landscape group will continue its outings and meetings. The group's current assignment is an exploration of the rolling hills around Therfield.

As the weather gets warmer, two of the society's members will run a development session for the winners of the recent Rotary Junior Photographer competition.

Members have also been on outings to Northampton to photograph a colony of harvest mice, and are soon going to Devon to take pictures of a range of British mammals.
