It’s springtime in Paris and the weather is oh so lovely. I’ve been spending the majority of my days tucked away in the museum working with my beetles under the microscope. It’s exhausting work, but I’m really enjoying it. I’m planning on doing a post with all the gorey details of what I’m doing. Well, not all…some. Today I wandered outside since the weather was just too beautiful to pass up and strolled around in the Jardin des Plantes. I’m working just steps away and it’s the perfect way to take a break and recharge for getting back to work. I have more pictures that I’ll put into another post, but I thought this fly was especially sweet. I like the way she’s reaching out and just touching the tip of the flower. I feel similarly about my research – just scratching the surface of a vast web that lies beneath. Well I need to get to sleep so I’m productive tomorrow! Au revoir!
