Sorry about not updating this blog for a few months. The reason for this has been that I was offered a job in December 2013 as one of two Curatorial Assistants at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and I’ve been working on the Lepidoptera collections there since then, mainly on the moth collections in the Swinhoe room, though in the evenings I work on the butterfly collections, specifically the collections of Henry Walter Bates.
I still aim to keep this blog and hopefully return to updating it, but I may have to wait until I see what I can do with the official museum blog.
I love my new job and the people here are incredibly encouraging. Hurrah for insects! Here are a few pics:
