Humans are incorrigibly creative. Botanical artists always amaze me in the creativity they display within self chosen constraints. These artists have a passion for precision. The accuracy and detail that is woven into most of these works never ceases to amaze me.
The creativity comes in with scale, detail,context. and a myriad of styles and techniques.. I have always loved attending these styles of exhibitions and this is an annual one centering around the work of Friends of the Australian National Botanical Gardens. Sadly there are no photographs signs all around so I have only included public advertising display material below.

Some photography is truly memorable and this show was one such event. These photos celebrate nature in photographs in all its mystery, movement and miniature detail combined with a flair for the visually exciting. there are patterns, excitement and a sense of adventure. One set uses plants to represent major corporations.
I have included a few of the snaps below for your pleasure.

The Australian National Botanical Gardens has lots of beautiful birds and plants. Photography is a great way to share those beauties. Right now there is a great exhibition of photographs of birds and plants an flowers in the exhibition centre. Modern photography enables the photographer to take the most precise images and work them in ways that highlight the beautiful colours, shapes, contrasts and creative beauty in a way that draws the viewer in.
The beauty of this exhibition is there is lots to buy, Prints, cards and other variously shaped representations of these beautiful photographs can be bought.The exhibition is put on by the friends of the ANBG Photographic Group and the title is refocus.
