Beautiful insects

My local museum here in Scarborough has a small exhibition of art works painted by children (1). They were inspired by trays of insects held by the Scarborough museums trust.

They were painted by children of different ages but all are beautifully painted and wonderfully creative.

I am a retired entomologist with a background in quarantine pests and invasive invertebrates. I studied zoology at Imperial College (University of London) and did a PhD on the population dynamics of a cereal aphid (Metopolophium dirhodum) in the UK. I spent 5 years with the British Antarctic Survey studing cold hardiness of Antarctic invertebates and 17 years with the Food and Environment Research Agency. My main interests now are natural history, photography, painting and bird watching.
