Colour Gallery

Flora and Fauna is devoted to those subjects that I see out in the field but also in parks, gardens or even plant life shot at home in my study. I must admit that I have very little knowledge of the different plant life that I have in front of the camera generally but I do like to shoot the wonderful details of nature & not just the wide expanse of a complete landscape scene.

It’s always a pleasure venturing out into the countryside & being able to appreciate the colours & wide variety of plant life that add so much colour & interest to the environment. Being in a field surrounded by Poppies or Sunflowers does the eyes & soul good. Set against a mountain backdrop or a deep blue sky, there’s nothing to beat it.

“What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. … In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.”

 ― John Lubbock, The Beauties of Nature and the Wonders of the World We Live in

Did You Know?

Flora is the name given to the collective plant life that grows or once grew in a certain area or during a given time period. It usually refers to the native plant life present but does include new species that have been introduced as well. Both the flora and fauna of the earth have been given sub-divisions. Fauna is also distinguished in many different ways. However, these ways are much more complex than floral divisions because animal life has evolved into many different forms.
