POTM Calendar

The Photo Of The Month is a year round calendar of selected nature images and stories with contributions from visitors, fellow photographers and friends.
 When it comes to nature photography, it's not only those fascinating tales of high adventure that often accompany talent and skill for a fabulous result. If a picture is truly worth more than a thousand words then a well-timed shot, or a well framed one, can say just as much about you as a photographer too! So if you'd like to showcase one of your pictures here, free for one calendar month with a short story on how you managed to come by it, then this page is for you.

Cold Comfort Charm by Roger Cox

Imagine being stuck inside a cold, cramped house with no heating your entire life. Now imagine someone else with the same problem enjoying the comforting warmth of their home by denying you the same pleasure to enjoy yours! Worse yet, having to suffer that person not only as a bad neighbour, but as a bullying housemate!
 Selfishness, dominance and violence are characteristic of the possessive, oppressive and agressive, which is somewhat fitting for the cold-blooded nature of the African spurred tortoise. Males are far from sociable; prone to barging, biting, ramming and overturning a rival when it comes to food; a mate, or in this case: the best place to bask under a 250W bulb! Females (when not pregnant) are better behaved, but as with the rest of their kind, strangers to any notion of caring. So that even for the smallest member of this trio at the Lake District Wildlife Park, figurative terms like “being sat on" and "hogging the heat," have a more literal meaning when it comes to sharing some of the warmest places, with the coldest of companions! That said, spurred tortoises are not all bad. They can also be docile, shy and quiet as well as long-lived, which only adds to their charm when the biggest ones amongst them are not only stealing the limelight - but all the heat from it as well!
