Coming out of the bird gallery at the Museum of Nature, there are a series of display cases with live critters of the creepy crawly, insect and arachnid variety. Such as this.
And its distant cousin.
I headed out into the Queens Lantern. To make up for the above, here are some of the stained glass windows in this part of the museum.
And more takes on that Moon suspended in here. We'll move into another gallery space tomorrow.
But leaving off today, it's the theme day for City Daily Photo, and the theme is Shopping. You can find others interpreting this theme right here. My initial idea for the theme is not possible under current restrictions, but it occurred to me that I had an alternative, and in keeping with museums. Below are two items I've bought in the last year at museum gift shops, on my rolltop desk at home. The cup at left is from the Canadian Museum of History, and incorporates the beautiful mural Morning Star by First Nations artist Alex Janvier onto it. The second is from the Canada Museum of Science And Technology, featuring a sketch and writing of Leonardo da Vinci on it. Leonardo was the subject of a major exhibit at that museum last year.
