MEMBERS of the Echo Camera Club have shared pictures of their beloved pets - and we're putting them in the spotlight.

These photographers usually point their lens towards the sky or some beautiful scenery, but this time they are focusing on their much-loved pets.

Your terrific tortoises and cuddly cats play an important role in your lives, so we want to place them in the spotlight.

Whether you own a four-legged friend, a brightly-coloured bird or curious cat - our pets are a cherished part of our day to day life.
