Photographers sent in their actions shot for this week's Camera Club competition theme.

Pictures of pets in action running and shaking their fur, snaps of planes, and sports were sent in.

However, one brilliant action shot caught our eye.

Gordon Craig has the winning snap with a bird of prey in action and diving down.

The powerful bird is squawking with its sharp talons out on display as it soars through the air.

The photographer has aptly captioned the fast moving action picture 'attack'.

Next week's Camera Club competition theme is 'travel'.

Post your 'travel' themed entries to the Oxford Mail Camera Club Facebook page and your picture could feature in next week's paper.

Happy snapping!
