Today I took members of the Biology Club to the Museum of Natural Science. Brandon, the other club advisor, set up a behind the scenes tour of the Cockrell Butterfly Center.

This is where the chrysalises are kept. When the butterflies come out they are taken to the butterfly habitat.
I took pictures of tons of butterflies, but this one is my favorite. It's a rice paper butterfly hanging upside down.
