Museum of Natural Science Houston

Today Papa and I took Ethan to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. We also saw an IMAX film, but the highlight of the day was visiting the Cockrel Butterfly Center which is at the museum.

Butterflies were everywhere flying all around us. Ethan got to hold a butterfly on his hand!
The butterfly sat on him for a good 10 minutes until Ethan said he started to "tickle" we had to try to get the butterfly to step onto a leaf before he finally flew away.

This brown butterfly was very large and the tips of it wings looked like the head of a snake.

Those are some pretty incredible butterflies - especially the one with the snake-head wing-tips. How cool that this one landed on Ethan and stayed on him for that long. Looks like you all had a fun time!
