Wild Kew

If you appreciate excellent wildlife photography, click the title link to view an enchanting audio slideshow by Paul Kerley of a selection of Heather Angel's shots of wildlife in Kew Gardens, taken over a year. Her softback book Wild Kew was published today by Kew Publishing, price £9 (CLICK). Watch out for a heron perched on the top of Hercules Fighting Achelus, the fountain at the centre of The Palm House Pond. The original bronze statue by Francis Joseph Bosio was commissioned by King Charles X of France in 1822 and stands in the Louvre Museum, Paris. Bosio's version for Kew Gardens was installed in 1853.
