With the weather being mild and the sun shining for most of the week, avid photographers from the mid Essex camera club have caught stunning scenes on camera.

Photos show flowers blooming outside the Bull Inn in Halstead, a seemingly judgemental owl in Braintree, and the Trinity lightship in Tollesbury.

Richard Moss photographed a beautiful misty morning sunrise in Bocking.

And Paula Wiseman's shot of sparrows looks like an expensive wallpaper print.

Check out our gallery for some of the snaps of nature across mid Essex this week, taken by you.
