Scarab beetles

Here are some final stills from the film Growing Pains: the Life and Times of Victoria Cruziana, showing the scrarab beetle flying into the centre of the lily, to be trapped overnight, “a beetle’s dream boudoir” in the words of Alex Summers, glasshouse supervisor at the Cambridge   University Botanical Gardens.  You can see the film as well as many other treasures from May 27th at the Discoveries Exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridgescarabb001 scarabb002 scarabb003 scarabb004
