Stunning Pictures Of The International Garden Photographer of the Year 2018 Macro Winners

The International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) contest has recently announced the 2018 Macro Art category's winners. Being operated together with the association and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, UK, the project is the leading competition and exhibition for garden, plant, flower, and botanical photography in the world. For the Macro Art category, photographers were encouraged to capture garden life up close, unveiling plant life's extraordinary details and the tiny inhabitants who live among them.


The first place was awarded to Croatian photographer Petar Sabol for his incredible picture titled Mayflies. It depicts two mayflies perching on a poppy stem, while the sunlight illuminates their intricately patterned wings.


The second place went to English photographer Ian Gilmour, who shot a salad burnet herb's complex structure. The third place was awarded to California-based photographer Ashley Moore that captured the peculiar caterpillar-like form of a Phacelia plant.

  2. Hello everyone, I must start by saying that I didn’t go into marriage with expectation that it will fail after 8 years. I and my spouse where not compassionate to ourselves. Trying to work out my marriage was self-defeating, we don’t really know why we no longer find ourselves attractive anymore. All we secretly thought was divorce, we couldn’t agree or communicate anymore, it was emotionally difficult moments when we face each other in the bedroom.
    I know that a phycologist might not be able to help me go through divorce because it has never worked for me. Divorcing could traumatize our kids, I can’t let them be emotionally crippled.
    I remember my grandmother once told me that not issues can be resolved physically, I should try solving some issues spiritually through a well-known spiritual doctor.
    I can provide evidence that my life and marriage got more better and interesting with so much love and fulfilled promises after Dr. Wakina lighted up our fire with a magnificent love spell with the aid of [email protected]
    The spell work I never regarded rewrote my story. I’m touched beyond words, thanks Dr. Wakina.
