Billy's London Town -- posted by John

Yesterday, Billy went to the Natural History Museum in London to see the Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year special exhibit. Here's a picture he took of the museum when he arrived:



And you won't believe the rest of the building!

Of course, he couldn't take pictures of the exhibition, but we looked at the online gallery. The photographs are really cool.

This is the winner of the Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year. He got chiggers from lying on the ground to get this shot:

You can look at this YouTube video of Mac Stone's photography in Francis Beidler Forest. It is amazing!

After Billy visited the Natural History Museum, he went to the National Gallery. He also took a picture of Trafalgar Square. You can see Nelson's Column, and Big Ben in the distance:
