|Published: 24th July 2017 11:57|
We love to receive your photos of the local area, to share with our readers.
You decide what to photograph - whether it's a special occasion, a local landmark, or just something or somewhere that has caught your eye.
You can see previous months' galleries here .
If you would like to send us a photo or photos, please contact us by email. Or, you can post them on our Facebook page and we will pick them up from there. Photos must be a minimum of 500 pixels wide.
When a new photo is added, it will be placed at the top of the article, which will be boosted so that it appears in 'Latest' on the home-page. That way you will know there is at least one new photo in a gallery, possibly more, to delight your eyes.
Roy Wilson writes: "I was walking along the Wirral Way yesterday and was amazed to see a number of dragonflies about.
"I managed to get a shot of this male southern hawker having a rest."
We are very grateful to ©iDreamofPiesPhotography for allowing us to share this fabulous photo taken at Ness Gardens recently....an absolute stunner:
Roy Wilson has been experimenting with macro photography recently. He says: "Flies are a nuisance but close up quite colourful. This was taken on the Wirral Way during one of our sunny afternoons."
Roy Wilson spotted these ducks at the entrance to ParkgateFest on Wednesday May 31, he says he's sure he heard one of them say 'Are we too early for ParkgateFest???'
Captured by Roy Wilson in Church Lane on a beautifully sunny May day, he says: 'The fuschia is bright'....
Check out this spotted woodpecker, caught on camera by Roy Wilson in Parkgate:

Time to solve a mystery....this 'bench' has suddenly appeared opposite the telephone exchange in Park Street, snapped by Roy Wilson. Any ideas of the story behind it?
(Mystery subsequently solved - see our update article here)

Spring has sprung, says Anne Jones, after spotting this amazing fungi on the roadside in Ness on March 28:
We've had a few through from Roy Wilson recently....
This stunning Red Kite was spotted at RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands. Roy says: "This beautiful red kite flew overhead. It is still a fairly uncommon sight."
Here's a Chiffchaff, also spotted at Burton Mere Wetlands. Roy says: "It has probably flown all the way from Western Africa to announce that spring is here. Quite a feat for such a small bird."
Spotting birds in trees is quite normal. The next two photos tell a rather different tale!
This one was seen on the Wirral Way....
One can only imagine the next one is a casualty of the recent storms...also spotted on the Wirral Way:
