Which Way Up by Perspicador A good start as I'm sure many of us have spent time photographing birds.

I wish I had put my trousers on by Johnwnjr. Wandering in the wilds and trying to keep social distancing. It doesn't appear many others have been through this wilderness.

My Friendly Kite by Vic Cross. Another image of a bird. Can imagine you lying on the moor looking up and catching this image, away from the crowds.

Garden Impression by Nigelk. I'm sure many of us have the time to experiment with varying amounts of success. I think this one works because it is "different"

Social Distancing by davidtrout. Not taken during lockdown (not a requirement of the competition) but a very phrophetic image which fits the brief.

Keep taking the Tablet by johnriley. Certainly a way to keep a child amused. I like the way the colour from the screen is lighting up the child's face.

Growing Stuff - A Melon by GlynM. A very good close up of a melon. The skin looks like it is a ball of wool. Alway fascinating watching stuff grow especially when you can eat it later.

Potting On by davidwozhere. I would imagine many would be catching up on gardening chores during this period. Good detail but I think I may have got rid of the white item on the right.

Hello there! by Noelcmn. A happy smile indeed and I think there will be lots more when lockdown is completely over and it's safe to go about our way of life again.

Winner Hello there! by Noelcmn

2nd Place I wish I had put my trousers on by Johnwnjr

3rd Place Social Distancing by davidtrout

Well done first 3.
By the way Stan if you read my comments you'l see I was in the garden not on the moors. The wildlife comes to me. Aren't I the lucky one.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.
