Plant life photography

Whereas animals can move to suit their needs, plants generally have to survive and reproduce in the one place where they start life. From overall form to leaves, flowers and seeds, plants have coped with their immobility by evolving supremely well-adapted features, together with the plasticity to alter their development when the need arises. The result is an array of diverse and intricate structures which are as beautiful as they are functional.
