We had what may just be the toughest time we’ve ever had over the past 17 challenges picking the Honorable Mention Award winners this week. We found ourselves wishing that we could award more than 5 awards this week, but – rules are rules, so we’ve done our best to select 5 of the most outstanding photos! They are presented below in no particular order.

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge - Pink Flower

In the past one would conclude that I had an overwhelming flower obsession!

A flower obsession is a good one to have, and with beautiful flowers like this around it’s no wonder Ayo is obsessed with them!

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge - Mullik Ghat Flower Market

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge - Ladybug on Flower

Flowers are the most beautiful forms of nature and just ask to be admired, loved and photographed.

Western Australia in the springtime is a mecca for flower lovers. We spent August to October in 2010 slowly travelling along the west coast immersed in the most incredible display of flowers you could imagine. This area has the most diverse collection of wild flowers in the world. The shape, texture, form and colours are a visual feast.

A visual feast indeed! Pauline’s photo shows us that humans aren’t the only ones who love a pretty flower.
