Welcome visitor.

Thank you for visiting.

On this photopage you will see the amazing world of plants in a way you rarely do.
With more than 7000 photo's this page is intended to give you somewhat of a scientific view of the plants and flowers shown and not really a romantic one. Focus lies in the important details and true colours.
The photo's on this page are therefore used by scientists worldwide and the naming of the plants constantly monitored and updated with the help of several of the world's most renowed taxonomists.

Many plants on this page are very rare and therefore it often happens that the photo's have been made from cultivated plants. As I dislike 'fake' photography these photo's are easily recognisable by the gray or black studio background that make the important details stand out best.
All plants that look like they where photographed in nature really are, unless otherwhiles stated.

I hope you will be as amazed as I am by the variation in colours and shapes the botanical world has to offer.
