SHARE: Readers invited to capture the beauty of nature

Aim, snap, shoot, and share your pictures of Langley wildlife and you could win

One thing that can be done safely during COVID is taking walks, runs, or drives.

During those outings, and especially given the reduction in other people out and about, you’ve probably noticed a reduction in pollution and increase in wildlife sightings.

So, once again the Langley Advance Times is inviting its readers to share their best ‘Wildlife in Our Backyard’ pictures.

By sharing your photographs, you are automatically entered to win $50 Joseph Richards Group gift card – good at any of their establishments.

Email your pictures to contest@langleyadvancetimes.com, and include the photographer’s name, where the picture was taken (must be in Langley), and a phone number you can be reached at.

All entries must be received before midnight on Monday, July 6.

Most pictures will be shared online. Some will be published in print. The contest is limited to Lower Mainland residents.

One example is this a photograph taken last weekend of some Canadian geese, not practising social distancing, while crossing the Langley Bypass near Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

The contest winner will be announced in mid-July.

In advance, thanks for sharing.
