Autumnwatch team Flickr favourites - Week 5

Post categories:

Jeremy Torrance web producer Jeremy Torrance web producer | 11:39 UK time, Wednesday, 3 November 2010

Over 20,000 of your photos have been added to the Autumnwatch Flickr group since we opened it again this year!

To show our appreciation for you sharing your wonderful photography with us, here's the latest edition of our team favourites.

Producers Holly and Hannah are big long-tailed tit lovers. Holly gets wonderful twittering flocks in her garden. We love the colours in this adorable shot.

One of our runners George was blown away by the shots of ladybirds in the Flickr group. When she first saw such big clusters she thought that they must have been staged. We think this capture is a wonderful depiction of their clustering behaviour.

Webmistress Sam is a fungi fan and on recent fungi watching trips has discovered how difficult it is to get good pictures of fungi. This shot impressed her for its clear focus against the soft bokeh.

We've been feeling the weather this week, as our trip to Mull was a very wet one and the blustery winds have been affecting our webcams. It's certainly been getting colder and this crisp capture feels particularly poignant as the fruits of the autumn meet the winter weather.

There's been a waxwing influx across the UK recently and this colourful capture is a favourite around the office this week.

Bugboy Nick Baker joins us this week for a minibeast challenge and we couldn't resist including this fabulous weevil picture. It's not a creature many of us are familiar with!

On last week's show we were really appreciating the natural fireworks of autumn and with photos like this coming into the group we're still enjoying seeing signs of the impending winter. Death has never been so beautiful!

There have been quite a few reports of red-flanked bluetail coming in across Suffolk and Pembrokeshire recently. They're likely to be passing through on their migration to south east Asia and researcher Ruth (a real twitcher) was delighted with this beautiful shot which was taken in Norfolk.

So which are your favourites? 

As ever please keep sharing your autumnal wildlife photography with us on the BBC Autumnwatch group where you can also get help with identifying species you've photographed or just discuss wildlife and wildlife photography with the Autumnwatch community. 

Check back next week for another batch of the team's favourites or for more beauties have a look at the selection from last week

    Thanks to all the Autumnwatch team for setting up the Flickr group to allow sharing of thousands of photos capturing the wonder, excitement and beauty of autumn! It is great achievement for so many different photographers to be able to contribute and then for viewers to share these lovely moments of nature in the UK.

    We feel very honoured that this week you have chosen our 'autumn leaves' photo to be included with these stunning wildlife photographs.
