Wonder bugs.

You know the best Christmas presents are the ones you give yourself. (Come on you know what I mean, I can't be the only one?) While in the Natural History Museum I spied this little beauty of a book. ‘The theatre of Insects’ Photography of Jo Whaley.

The environment and nature intimately photographed. The colours zing. She teaches your eye to explore the most miniscule, to study life you might have ordinarily overlooked. Capturing the natural beauty of butterflies and insects, and using manufactured backgrounds, she has created an intimate bond between nature and man. This is one book I am having trouble placing on the shelf, it is too beautiful to put away.
