During our travels we have seen some amazing things. As you know we are big fans of nature, particular the animal type. We love them so much we have put together two photo essays about them (Photo Essay 1 and Photo Essay 2) and before long will probably churn out some more.
But when talking about nature often the plant variety gets missed out. No it doesn’t swing through trees or have a cute smiley face (like a sloth), but it is still mighty impressive. These plants need to multiply in order to survive, so each plant needs to ‘put on a show’ to lure bees, birds and the like so it can spread it’s pollen. One of the ways it does this is by producing the best looking and most colorful flowers to attract them. And that is where we get to see the show!
There are just so many different varieties of flower to see. It is amazing to travel to so many different locations and see how nature has developed differently. I mean, there are over 20,000 different species of orchid alone (and Nicole tells me they are all beautiful).
And let’s face it, the flowers do smell a lot better than some of those animals! Enjoy our Flowers of the World Photo Essay.
