Plant, Wildlife and Landscape Photography

Simply photographs,, one a day when worthwhile, with a brief comment – plus (usually) something from my archives to spice up “Memory Sundays”. Most pictures are of botanical, wildlife and landscape subjects. This is not a business. I rarely try to sell images but am always open to offers – and please read the copyright notice at the foot of the page..
