Royal Horticultural Society photographic competition 2013 – the winning pictures

The annual RHS photography competition attracts stunning images of flora and fauna – here are some of the winning pictures from 2013, from a shy mole to a starling in the fog and some towering foxgloves



This extraordinary photograph of a bee flying between towering, pink foxgloves at Great Dixter Gardens has won £1,000 and the coveted title of RHS Photographer of the Year 2013 for Heather Buckley of Brighton. The photo also won the ‘Plants’ category, which carries another prize of £350 for Heather.



Jacky Parker’s photograph of an anemone de caen won first prize in the details category.


Mateusz Piesiak from Poland was named young photographer of the year for this picture of a starling.
