About This Category

This collection is of free images/photos/pictures, sounds, videos, etc from science, technology and nature, including birds, animals and plants, and some from the fields of chemistry, physics and biology. Some exhibits that could be in here may be found in collections with a more specific remit, such as "Flowers" and "Leaves and Greenery".

This is intended to serve, in part, as a teachers' and students' resource.

See also New Scientist for the latest news, The Register's science and tech stories, the EurekAlert!/AAAS Multimedia Gallery, and BioImages - Virtual Field-Guide (UK) for scholarly info.

Also, for attempts to catalogue all known species, see: the Encyclopedia of Life, and Barcode of Life.

If you're a journo or other non-scientist and need help with a science fact or story, please consider talking to Sense About Science to help you.

This picture was taken from the window of a coach.   The vultures started to leave as soon as the coach came into view.   We tried to to stop the coach and get closer for a better photo, but the vultures had dispersed into the ether by the time we'd piled off.
When we passed travelling in the opposite direction several hours later there was a wolf chewing at the carcass.
