Thought I'd start a nature photos thread as a nice place to collect all our shots of flora and fauna. I know we've already got a separate birds thread but I see so many great shots of mammals and plant life passing through the Random Photos thread that I thought they deserved a thread of their own.

I'll kick it off with a few flower shots I took at the weekend, I'm trying to keep a record of all the flowers I see in my local patch of forest this year, I only wish I had a dedicated macro lens so that I could get really close.

Nice idea Mike. I also fancy getting some better pics, and a decent record, of wildflowers on my patch this year but not quite got round to starting yet biggrin
