Lately the Guardian is into nature photographs, and some lovely snaps they are. First is their presentation of the ten greatest nature photographs of all time. I can’t get on board with all of their selections, but there are some undeniably great pictures. Here are two:

And, at another site, the Guardian has 21 nice photos of microscopic marine life. Here’s one:
