These are photographs taken by members of the Dawlish & Teignmouth Camera Club on the theme of SPRING AHEAD and moving forward, interpreted any way they like.

Found nesting in my garage, a family of Spanicus Adjusticulus (Latin Name). Breeding and raising their Spaniculars throughout the year, they are mostly found nesting under car bonnets or kitchen sinks. They are also closely related to Screwus Driverlus and the Bigus Hammerlus

I am always fascinated by the intense clear blue skies of the winter and early spring. The perfect background for most subjects.
