New work from Burgundy

July 19th, 2015. We’ve just returned from a visit to Burgundy where we were staying with Charlotte’s parents near Moulins Engilbert. For a few years now, I’ve been documenting the abundant wildlife in their garden, pond and adjacent lane and find new species every time. Highlights this time included one of Europe’s longhorn beetles, the tanner, and the house centipede, complete with its 15 pairs of unfeasibly creepy legs. It’s the sort of work that has no clear end-use but which is profoundly satisfying. Perhaps that’s essential in this profession, given its modest financial rewards.
