An intimate glimpse at plants and their pollinators
Combine a day trip into the Perth Hills with a visit to a stunning exhibition of natural history images by local photographers.

Look into the more intimate side of nature in this photography exhibition showing plants and animals in the act of pollination. See birds, beetles and butterflies as they join in an activity that has led to the incredible diversity of flowering plants found across the world. Other images showcase the exotic beauty of flowering plants.

This is a joint exhibition held by the Mundaring Arts Centre and the Mundaring Camera Club as part of the What On Earth project. The two groups have been holding an annual exhibition at the Boya Community Centre since 2017. This exhibition not only highlights the beauty of nature and the intimate relationship between plants and their pollinators, but also showcases the talents of local photographers (and talented they are!) while encouraging people to join the Mundaring Camera Club. You can find out more about the Club at www.mundaringcamera.club.

Nearly 100 entries were submitted and whittled down to this exhibition of 40 final entries. Twenty entries were reserved for members of the Mundaring Camera Club. All entrants are amateur photographers living in the Shire of Mundaring and City of Swan regions or are members of the Mundaring Arts Centre and the Mundaring Camera Club.

The exhibition is part of a larger series of activities, workshops and exhibitions for the What On Earth Icon Project held by the Mundaring Arts Centre and Midland Junction Arts Centre, with activities taking place at both centres and other locations across Perth.
