? The Drongo Love ? Happy Valentine's Day ?

Earlier today we published the first of two posts in a series on Wildlife photography so thought this week we might give you an opportunity to practice the tips in it by making our challenge on the topic of ‘Nature’.

It is a little broader than ‘wildlife’ because not every dPS reader is in a position to photograph animals in the coming week but if you’re able to we’d love to see what you can do.

Feel free to photograph any aspect of nature you like. It could be some macro photography of flowers or insects in your back yard, you might want to get out to the beach and do some seascapes or shoot a sunset, you might find yourself drawn to the countryside for some landscapes or you might head to the zoo for some zoo photography!

It is totally up to you.

Once you’ve created your Nature upload it to your favourite photo sharing site and either share a link to it or – embed it in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSNATURE to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the images posted in our last challenge – Diptych challenge where there were some great images submitted.
