Weekly Photography Assignment: Insects
Each week we’ll be giving you a theme that you can submit a photo for, and we’ll choose our favourite to be featured on the Nature TTL website. Participating in these assignments will be a great way for you to force yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.

Our theme this week is Insects. As the days get warmer, all sorts of insects are beginning to emerge. Show us what you can find close to home or further afield, and get creative with your images! We can’t wait to see your photos.

Last Week’s Favourite
Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Spring. You can view all of the entries here.
This week’s winning photo is by Roland Bogaerts who took this photo in Belgium. The blossom is a symbol of spring fitting perfectly with the theme. The image itself has a strong composition and is exposed very well, with lots of detail in the highlights and shadows. Nice work Roland!
