San Diego Natural History Museum
Nearly 200 skulls from around the world on display, "showcasing an eye-popping array of horns, beaks, bills, teeth, and more." Through October 26, 2015.Butterflies and Insects
Twenty-four wildlife photographers come together to display works that celebrate the gift of flight and depict majestic creatures in their natural habitats. These 70 images capture the splendor of the butterfly, as well as other insects and their arthropod relatives.
Butterflies are seen as a multicultural symbol of the beauty. Insects, on the other hand, are often met with slight prejudice and annoyance, but most are harmless and actually beneficial. Insects make up one of the most diverse groups of animals on the planet, including more than 1 million described species and representing more than half of all known living organisms. These photographic works capture the beauty and splendor of nature’s smallest citizens.
Presented in the Ordover Gallery on Level 4 of the San Diego Natural History Museum. Runs September 19 to January 11, 2016.
