November was an even busier month, with a wealth of new North American material by Rolf Nussbaumer, strong animal portraits and behaviour from Charlie Summers, great flower abstracts from Edwin Giesbers, Mark Carwardine's latest whales and dolphins, and varied new Australian material from Jouan & Ruis.



It was also a month for giants and extremes, with Brandon Cole's spectacular giant octopus,
Tim Laman's images of the world's largest orchid and of flying snakes, Bryan and Cherry Alexander's polar images, and Jeff Wilson's rare material on markhor and snow leopard in their wild Himalayan environment.
