12 September 2018 | “Beautiful Bugs: Discovering a Hidden World” by Ann Healey

This week we were visited by Ann Healey, who took us through her collection of macro photography of the last ~10 years, give or take.

It was a great insight into the results that can be achieved with a lens, a flash and more than a little patience. The journey crisscrossed the world of "bugs" taking us through bees, beetles, ladybirds, damselflies, dragonflies, "standard" flies, froghoppers, leafhoppers, grasshoppers, crickets, spiders and weevils. The majority of her subjects were found in her garden, although more than a few were snapped in sunnier climes. The talk ended with a few shots of her discoveries in Costa Rica, where the bugs were altogether far more exotic than the bluebottles we get buzzing around our kitchen!
