If you can't go to nature, then nature must come to you! OK, so having said that, I'm not nearly as tough as my Nature Group friends whose work I so admire. I took myself to the NC Museum of Science last Saturday and spent the day inside the warm museum looking at the exhibits. This was the first time the butterfly room was open when I was there and it was amazing. The room is filled with different species of butterflies and all the beautiful plants and food sources that they need. I took close up shots of them and then went to grab a bite to eat in the Museum cafe. The cafe has a glass wall that gives you an incredible view of the inside of the butterfly room. I sat for a long time sketching and enjoying the quiet. I didn't get around to finishing my page until today when the snow kept me in. It was a great day!
