Britain's rarest flowering wildlflower has been a major photo project commission (Kew Gradens & Nature England) that I have been covering for the past 3 years. From germination labs at Kew to the re-establishment of plants in the wild... all will be relieved in in National Geographic magazine next April 2013.

A stunning top of the range, perfectly composed piece, full of glorious colour and pin sharp detail.
