The most fascinating exhibition was the Butterfly Haven. You’re in a jungle-like room (a very hot room) with butterflies flying all around you. It’s amazing seeing so many in one place. And they are beautiful. I was able to snap a few up-close pictures:
Pssst....these two were mating. I gave them privacy after I took this....
As we were looking around we spotted this really pretty bird right above our heads. I have no idea what kind of bird it was but I'm glad it stayed still long enough for me to snap a picture.
I also loved this sculpture outside the museum. It's called Steelroots.
So aside from the screaming kids it was a fun museum trip. I got some great pictures and had a lovely afternoon with Rob so I'd say it was a pretty successful outing. All the bright colors of the butterflies inspired me. I think I should bake something colorful. :)

Screaming kids get on my last nerve. Too bad I work in an elementary school :P
Rob - hahaha! I think so!ReplyDelete
John - yes...quiet, well behaved ones I like a lot!
Marie - Thanks! You are a Saint. I couldn't do it. :D
Oh, EXQUISITE butterflies! I feel your pain about the kids. I like kids just fine, but hoards of screaming ones at a museum? Eeeeee!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great place, squealers aside.
Thanks Natalie! :) My hearing is slowly coming back.ReplyDelete
