May 2012 saw some great new material added to our site. We uploaded great new pandas (giant and red), unusual penguin and polar bear shots, vibrant underwater material from Alex Mustard, a fascinating mustang story form Carol Walker, plus a wealth of new images of British and North American wildlife, iconic landscapes and summer activities. Not to mention mayflies, silk moths and illustrations of dinosaurs and extinct species.
