Artist's Description

Tansy Beetle, a very rare insect which lives only along the RIver Ouse around York (England). There is an intensive conservation project by TBAG (tansy Beetle Action Group) with captive breeding and release into carefully selected and monitored sites. Fences prevent grazing animals eating the tansy plant, the only food this beautiful iridescent insect can feed upon.
The colony of which this tiny insect is part is in the Museum Gardens in York.
The bubble is digestive enzymes
