Earlier this week I embarked on an epic one day journey to visit the natural science stores of the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.
The research session was organised by @socaberlady along with @societyscottishartists ahead of an exciting VERY exciting exhibition this May (watch this space) 🕸
The assistant entomology curator @ash_whiffin showed us around the huge collection (a total of 2.5 million specimens), including some beetles from the 250 year old - and scientifically important - Dufresne Collection.
Now safely back in Somerset after flying into Edinburgh and out of Glasgow..
What we do for the things we love!
