Our trip to the nation’s capital led us to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. We paid six dollars for time spent in the butterfly room. Worth every cent and more. Below are the amazing creatures we got to spend a little time with. Butterflies live a remarkably short time. In fact, one of the moths we saw is born without a mouth and cannot eat or drink. I asked Chris what the point of that was. He said the moth was basically a flying penis…imagine that, a flying penis.
