Gratuitous beautiful insect photo! Monarch butterfly feeding on nectar. I took this photo while at work today at the Butterfly Pavilion at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. It’s moments like this that make my job so fascinating and wonderful. #NHM100 #nofilter #lepidoptera
Curiosity if the day answer: Pteranodon from Kansas with a shark tooth lodged in it’s cervical vertebra. One of the museum’s many mysteries! This specimen is on display in the Dinosaur Hall at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Ouch!
