FUN WITH FLUTTERBIES

While I was in LA we took the children to The Museum of Natural History. There was a Butterfly Pavilion there. We arrived early and got into the first group to go in. Firstly we had to listen to the instructions of the do's and don'ts inside the pavilion. The boys did a good job at listening.

 The family are members of the museum and take the children often to the museum. There are lots of activities for children.

We all enjoyed looking at the butterflies.

 I tried out the automatic macro feature of my new Sony point and shoot camera. 
 I forgot to take a shot of the chart identifying the butterflies so just enjoy their beauty.

I was quite happy with this one for a P&S camera.

Sonya is such a good 'Mom' as she finds time to go to the museum with the children before she goes to work between 12;00pm and 12:00 am at this time of the year. 
 We found a caterpillar and
a chrysalis

Before we left the pavilion we had to make sure there were no hitchhikers trying to escape. This one tried to get a ride on the picnic bag on Bernie's back. We were not allowed to touch them you have to ask an attendant to remove the hitch hikers.

It was an exciting outing for the kids and me. There were other activities we participated in which will be the next post.

  6. The rule about not removing a butterfly from yourself seems unusual. I don't recall that in any other butterfly house.

  9. You must be happy with that new camera, Di. The macros shots are really good. The photo that played with my emotions is that first one. Bless their little hearts, standing and listening, one looking after the other. And I wonder where your daughter learnt her mothering skills??

  17. Nice post. Being able to take pictures of information signs is one of the many benefits of digital cameras!

  19. Butterfly pavillions are great fun, but always a bit too warm for me to stay as long as ai would like to. The new camera produced some good close-uos. The grand children are lovely too.
