MangroveWatch previously featured some of Deirdre Bean's mangrove paintings submitted for the Waterhouse Prize for Natural History for which she received a highly commended award.

Since then, Deirdre exhibited six paintings of Australian mangroves at the Royal Horticultural Society's London show in March 2012 for which she was awarded a Silver-gilt medal.

We highly recommend you visit Botanical Artist to view these absolutely stunning works.

Featured among these works by Deirdre is a painting of Xylocarpus granatum
