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.

Thumbnailcamel juvenile white camel market Darow Egypt SEW.jpg (Natural Science)

White camels are particularly prized, because you can see them in the desert in the dark (or so they told me). The elderly Egyptian man behind the camel was the manager of the camel market where the photo was taken. He was very proud to have fought with the British Army during the Second World War.
