Sedge, seedlings, santolina and stems

It seems only fitting that flora follows fauna (last month's theme), so this month's CJS Photography Competition has the suggested theme of Plants and Botany

This month (November) the prize is Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI) membership.

The BSBI is for everyone who is interested in the wild and naturalised plants of Britain and Ireland. We trace our origins back to 1836, when the society was founded as the Botanical Society of London. We are now one of the world's largest contributors of biological records: our data inform scientific research and underpin evidence-based conservation.
We have always welcomed both professional and amateur members, and remain the biggest and most active organisation devoted to the study of botany in Britain, Ireland, the Channel Isles and the Isle of Man. Our training, outreach and research programmes continue to support botanists at all skill levels, and our grants programmes helps us support the next generation of botanists.
The BSBI produces national Atlases and county Floras of the distribution of plants. We publish British and Irish Botany and hold conferences, workshops, indoor and field meetings.  
As a BSBI member, you are kept informed by a newsletter three times a year; your benefits include discounts on a range of botanical books; and you are given exclusive access to our network of 100+ national expert referees who can help with the identification of difficult plants.

Simply email your photo (jpegs please) to along with your name and any information you want to include about your photo: what it shows, where it was taken and a caption for a funny one would be welcome too. If you'd like us to tag you (or site / project) if we share your photo to social media please include the relevant handles and details.  You can enter as many photos as you like, but each image may only be entered once, it will be considered for the prize of the month and all entries are eligible for the overall end of year prizes.
Full rules are here - please read them before sending your photos, we'll assume you have.
