Rhuddlan Castle, LMS poster, 1929

Poster produced for London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) to promote rail travel to Rhuddlan Castle, Denbighshirre, Wales.

It was ravaged by Parliamentarians in 1643. Artwork by Norman Wilkinson, who studied art at Portsmouth and Southsea Schools of Art. A famous marine painter, he designed posters for the London & North Western Railway (LNWR), the London & Midlands Railway (LMR) and Southern Railway (SR) and organised the Royal Academy series of posters for the LMR in 1924. Dimensions: 1016 mm x 635 mm

Coloured SEM of an earwig, Forficula auricularia Featured 6 May 2003 Image

Coloured SEM of an earwig, Forficula auricularia

Earwig. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an earwig (Forficula auricularia) on leaf litter. Earwigs are predatory nocturnal insects which generally hide under stones and in crevices during the day. The superstition that earwigs seek out human ears and bite through the eardrum has no basis in fact. The earwig's head, with its long antennae, is at lower right. It has a pair of short wings (centre), but earwigs very rarely fly. Earwigs are omnivorous, and will eat flowers as well as other insects and carrion. The pincers (upper left) are used largely for defence purposes, and are raised over the head when attacked. Magnification: x2.5 at 5x7cm size. x6.5 at 5x7ins
