Seattle-based artist Bridget Beth Collins, better known by her creative name "Flora Forager," crafts delightful yet ephemeral works of arts using a variety of found organic materials, including flower petals, leaves, berries, moss and more.

"I love to adventure into the wildflower woodlands, mossy waterfalls, and grey sand starry expanses of the Pacific Northwest," she explains on her website. "I forage almost all of my creations from foliage and flowers plucked from our sidewalks, meadows, and woods in our neighborhood."

In this particular selection of work, we can see just how skilled Collins is at bringing to life some of the planet's most intriguing animals.

Peacocks, lions and blue-footed boobies — oh my!
