"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Wood Wasp

This female Wood Wasp Urocerus gigas was dropped on my desk at work by two of the fitters who had come across it whilst working in Manchester. Its the first one I've seen, shame it wasn't a live specimen.
