Each spring, hundreds of rough-skinned newts migrate from nearby forests to this pond to breed, captured in this @NHM_WPY image by photographer David Herasimtschuk. ‘The males are so desperate to mate,’ says David, ‘that I usually have a few hanging off me’. David's image is one of 100 exhibited on exquisite light panels at #WPY54. Weekends often sell out - click today's bio link or head to www.nhm.ac.uk/wpy to book in advance.

Megaloceros is an extinct genus of deer which lived throughout Europe until around 11,000 years ago. Its largest species, M. giganteus, is commonly known as the Irish elk.

photo_library These stunning cyanotypes were created by Anna Atkins, the first person to illustrate a book with photographic images.

Anna was born #OTD in 1799, and was a botanical artist and collector as well as pioneering photographer. Her innovative use of new technologies merged art and science to create impressively detailed blueprints of botanical specimens. 🌿

This week we're celebrating #TaxidermyWeek over on Twitter, with a different prompt for conversation around these fascinating specimens on each day. Today, the theme is 'overlooked specimens'.
We've got plenty of animals on display in our galleries, but the majority of the collection is stored safely behind the scenes, ready to feature in future displays or available to be used for scientific research.
