Yesterday I took Katie and her friend to the Natural History Museum of LA. It was another mad dash through a portion of it for a school project. Unfortunately, once again, the section we had to peruse through was under construction. The display was in a very small dark room, contents still in their boxes with the strapping on them. But hey, we got it done.
Prior to going we read that the Amgen Tour of California bicycle race going on around Exposition Park. We had to park in a different area than I was used to and stumbled into a fabulous butterfly exhibit. "Pavilion of Wings." I didn't have the correct camera equipment for this, but took shot anyhow. Here are some photos. (If you have a chance to head to LA, this exhibit will be there through September 6th. It's worth it!)
This guy's got HUGE eyes!
While I was taking photos, this little girl tapped me on my leg and said in a very sweet cute voice, "I have a butterfly on my head". She was so funny. She walked around for about a half hour with this contented butterfly. Her younger sister was adorable too but I didn't take her photo. Katie thinks I look like a stalker when I shoot kids that I don't know.
Isn't she precious?
