Butterflies, California Academy of Sciences

On Monday, my son and I enjoyed a fun visit to the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.  It was our last outing before his first day of school.  I think the highlight of this visit was the baby ostriches!  So many, and so cute!!   My son also wanted to go into the Earthquake Exhibit again (something he said he NEVER wanted to do again after a previous visit… see post here, Earthquake!  And more… California Academy of Sciences).  He didn’t find it nearly as frightening this time.  Maybe the experience will help us when a real earthquake occurs!

As always, however, the Rainforests of the World exhibit was amazing.  The butterflies are truly magical.  If you haven’t experienced this, you have to go.  I wasn’t able to capture a photo of the most beautiful butterfly of all, the large Blue Morpho.  Well, actually, the first photo (the brown one), is a Blue Morpho, but with its wings folded up, you can’t see the brilliant blue.
