A picture paints a thousand worms

By Jack Ashby, on 6 September 2012

Getty images in the mailKeen-eyed media-hungry readers may well have been seeing a lot of beautiful pictures of the Grant Museum on news websites this week. On Tuesday a photographer – Peter Macdiarmid – visited from Getty Images to shoot our collection, displays and store rooms in all their glory.

That very same day news sites started publishing the gallery of images across the world (strangely a large number of outlets in Washington and Texas seemed to love it). Closer to home the Telegraph, Daily Mail and Huffington Post published the full gallery, containing some of the best images I’ve seen of our beautiful specimens. Click on any of those links to take a peek, choosing your preferred purveyor of information. My favourite is the Huffington Post, which gives the best info about the Grant.

The Guardian and Wired also featured a pic in their respective Picture of the Day offerings.

Do have a look as they really are stunning. It will come as no surprise that the beloved moles feature, and the best looking worms I ever saw.
