One of my current photography projects is documenting the natural history of our garden. Natural history has been an interest of mine since childhood so this does not come as a surprise to those who know me. I can identify easily the mammals and birds who visit and most of the plants and trees, aided by a fairly extensive library accumulated over the years but am less good at naming all the invertebrates. This book came into the shop a couple of weeks ago and will be a useful addition as it is the volume in a series dedicated to invertebrates.
It was first published in 1913 and I have the 1930 reprint. The drawings are at times more helpful in identification than some of my more recent texts and there are practical tips for the zoology student in finding and studying different species. I hope that as the weather improves in spring, I will be outside with my camera adding to the shots I already have.
