here are some pics my wife and I took at the museum.... there are thousands of butterflies there, but it is rainforest-like inside.... foggy, and wet and humid, and hot... but if you are in Houston it is a must see.

Ernie

my wife thinks she needs her own camera because I am stingy with loaning her the camera for her 'perfect' picture which she always missed because I suposidley had the camera.

Ernie, thanks for posting this. When you said museum, I was expecting dead butterflies. This puts a whole new spin on "museum". If I'm ever in Houston I'll have to check it out.

P.S. Nice pics, especially your last shot of the reptile (beautifully framed). Is that an Iguana?

Great pictures. They have something similiar in Chicago at the Nortabert's Museum. I have always meant to go there, just never got the time.

great shots! there's a similar exhibit at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, with the same problems... humid & hot. were any of these taken with a macro lens? if so, how did you get around having your lens fog up?
