Lots of nature today

We went to the Natural History Museum today. Though the day was still not anything you would call warm, it was very humid outside. And since the museum, like most everything here, doesn't have air conditioning, it was incredibly hot inside. We didn't end up staying to see the entire museum, but the parts that we saw were neat. Here's Juliette with her favorite animal, the jaguar.

And Katrina wanted to pose with the grizzly bear.

Once we left the stuffy confines of the museum, we discovered a special feature entitled "Amazing Butterflies", which was on the lawn outside the museum. We decided to pay for entrance to it, and it turned out to be the highlight of the day. The butterflies were inside a greenhouse containing all manner of butterfly-attracting plants. My camera is nothing special, but I was pretty happy with some of the photos.
