PotM Calendar

The Photo of the Month (see gallery) 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.

The Family by Roger Cox
For many animals, living in a family is key to their survival. Not only do families act as a bulwark against rivals and predators. They also make better support systems for those in distress; offer a greater degree of care for their more vulnerable members, and provide a strong sense of community whenever help is needed most. One tiny exemplar of this kinship social system is this long-tailed tit, so-called because of its distinctive long tail, which exceeds its body-length, though the name is something of a misnomer since they're closely related to babblers.
 These exquisite little birds live and forage in extended family groups, bound together by filial ties to their relatives and offspring. Given the possible perils of any family outing, keeping in touch with repeating contact calls is essential. The downside is the give-away to anything within earshot. But with more than enough eyes on the lookout for dangers, as well as opportunities, they succeed in ways they might otherwise find difficult if they had to live and fly solo. So, who better to huddle-up with against the cold than a like-minded relative with similar goals and interests. Interests that go well beyond providing bodily warmth from within "the bosom of one's family."
 Should any relative fail to breed, they will instead aid one of their own with its nest and help rear their young! For the long-tailed tit, at least, it's a behaviour that ensures their success against the dangers and uncertainties of a life lived alone.
