The most brilliant way in which the Natural History Museum let visitors connect with nature was with the butterfly garden. This gave visitors a chance to truly connect with nature in a mutual and respectful manner that was both enjoyable for the humans as well as the butterflies. I felt like I was truly part of the butterflies' ecosystem, and the vast diversity of butterflies that were there also brought in many different species of plants, which diversified the overall experience and made me feel closer to nature, or the "biotic community" that was present. Other people reacted to the exhibit with joy, and I could tell that the museum had successfully connected the bridge between humans and nature. However, they did this in an ethical manner, as the butterflies have ample food and plants and space to live with, and the people that work with the butterflies truly care about their well-being. The moment I truly connected with the nature of this exhibit was when the pictured butterfly landed on me and stayed on me for an entire ten minutes. This rare experience brought me much closer to nature and made me feel as if I were a true part of the biotic community and gave me a memorable event to look back on.
