From feathers and fur to pets and wildlife, today's gallery features just some of the images shared for the Leader Camera Club's most recent challenge - animals.

All creatures great and small prove they're natural beauties, as Camera Club members focussed on the animal kingdom.

The Leader Camera Club is a very friendly and supportive group of professional and amateur photographers to share their images, with daily galleries printed in the Wrexham and Flintshire Leader, and regular online albums.

Often the group is set theme challenges which have included pathways, faces and seasonal songbird, the robin.

We have embraced a colour themed challenges too, such as red and blue, as well as the natural world, with trees.

Some special events have led to stunning galleries, such as the Snow Moon and the incredible frozen scenes earlier this year.

And of course the natural beauty of North Wales is often a great focus for members too.
