The Week on Sunday 5

I was about to put together my (irregular) regular edition of  ‘The Week on Sunday’, when I came across Morgan Jackson’s post, The WeeklyFlypaper. Well, he got what I got, and then some.

But he missed one thing….

Piotr Naskrecki spent his summer in Mozambique, working with E.O. Wilson surveying life in Gorongosa National Park. The New York Times has a brilliant slideshow of  some of the insects that Sir Mr. Naskrecki photographed while he was there. In this selection, the insects seem to be appraising the photographer as much as he is evaluating them.

Here is a short video on why this work in Gorongosa is important:

A Journey Through Gorongosa from E.O. Wilson Biodiversity on Vimeo.

And if you don’t know it yet, Mr Naskrecki began blogging after his return. I can say wholeheartedly, and with out fear of being contradicted (and not just because I moderate the comments…) that this is the best thing to happen to bug photography this year! If you are one of the few benighted people who still have not visited his blog, do so now!

Until next week…
