NATURE ON DISPLAY
The butterfly exhibit was incredible. It is like it's own nature reserve for these butterflies to live safe and without harm. This exhibit was appealing because butterflies are beautiful; their habitat was made to look like a reserve for these creatures. Walking into the exhibit, I immediately noticed how green everything was. There was also a steady stream of water running down into a little pond and the butterflies were fluttering like crazy by it.
The most enjoyable thing to me in this exhibit was trying to let the butterflies land on me. When the one, pictured above, landed on me it was a little terrifying, but also exhilarating.
NATURE AND ETHICS
Walking through the exhibit of animal fossils and the extinct animals allowed me to appreciate and respect where we come from. The exhibit walked you through a timeline, starting millions of years ago. Seeing how the fossils were assembled and knowing that a lot of these creatures were extinct or going extinct made me feel melancholy. It made me and the people around me come to a realization that all these creatures inhabited the world before we did. It is kind of crazy to think about.
