Just a quick check-in with some insect-related things since I'm well aware that it's not everyone's cup of tea. These photos really don't showcase the wealth of interesting things I saw and worked with whilst I was volunteering at the Natural History Museum. They all seem rather brown and boring compared to the riot of colour that appears amongst the specimens. There were some fantastic historical specimens at the museum such as those collected by Dr Livingstone as shown in the photo.
I rather fell in love with the praying mantis which appears in the second photo; she is a spiny flower mantis and her name is Valerie.
See you all soon for more vintage-related things :)
