These entries from the International Garden Photographer of the Year will leave you mesmerized

Botanical photography is not really a renowned field since it hardly witnesses any limelight in the commercial photography world. However, The International Garden Photographer of the Year along with the association of Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, have been key players in promoting garden photography and giving it the attention that it deserves by forming a platform of awards which then culminate into an exhibition in London as well as other countries around the globe.

Check out the winning photographs from over 11 categories to get simply mesmerized by the natural beauty of plants, shrubs, fruits and vegetables.
