Smile for the camera!

Knole unfortunately has a big problem with pest insects; we have the perfect environment for them to live in at the moment (but more on that another time).  From the monitoring traps around the house we keep some of the specimens for use in conservation in action to show our visitors.
Today we were using a digital microscope to look at some of them. 

This image shows a particularly happy Death watch beetle!
