I have been busily writing poetry (contemporary and haiku), and coupling them with photographs my friend David, my husband Paul and I have taken. I am starting with a photograph David Friend took of a beautiful dragonfly in Zambia. I love how David captured the essence of this beautiful insect. Prior to being in medical science (pharmaceuticals), I worked in agricultural science (entomology). I love insects almost as much as I love reptiles and amphibians (almost neck and neck). I find them rather difficult to capture, therefore challenging and rather entrancing when capturing a good photograph, particularly of a flying insect. I am still practicing my insect photography, but my husband Paul and our friend David seem to do a really good job at capturing wonderful insect shots. I wrote the poem ‘DANGEROUS EXCELLENCE’ a couple of days ago. I hope you enjoy it.
