This past week I got to spend an entire weekend with two literal angels (one of whom I was finally just meeting in person for the first time) 😌
Thanks for an amazing weekend @micxha.0 and @aiapapayaa 💖💖💖

With all this snow and cold weather I wish I could just hide out in the butterfly exhibit at the @museumofnature for the next few days!
Hubby and I went to the Nature Museum in Ottawa today. I have always wanted to see the Butterflies in Flight exhibit, even though things that fly at me uncontrollably kinda freak me out a bit. 😳 It was a great afternoon though and I really liked the exhibit!
Trying to be a good sport and pretending to like winter... 😝🥶💙. #winterlude #museumofnature #rideaucanal
2016 wurde der Neubau des @naturmuseum_st_gallen eröffnet. Die Sammlung und die Architektur des Hauses bilden einen einmaligen Kontrast. Es ist nicht verwunderlich, dass das NM 2017 für den europäischen Museumspreis nominiert war.

Honestly, I find butterflies haunting and creepy, but also incredible, like they could only have come into existence by magic. .

Old profile photo, Ornithoptera Priamus Bornemanni male from New England. It was collected last century around 80’s. Really amazing blueish form, with morpho like iridescent color. Speak of blueish form, some people believe that it was developed by UV radiation. I actually did a few experiments with Ornithoptera Priamus Poseidon which didn’t really work out. I tried a two different waves and nothing happened after 24 hours. But I do notice old Ornithoptera samples will display discoloration when it is under incandescent lamp. However, those samples does not have iridescent reflections. Does blueish form actually occur in nature? #butterfly #ornithopterapriamus #ornithoptera #museumofnature #naturemuseum #lepidoptera #lepidopterology #birdwingbutterfly #bluebirdwingbutterfly
This week had its ups and downs! But I’m thankful for life’s highs and yes, the lows because these lessons are all teachable moments to grow, to improve. Finished the week on a definite high note with taking important Inuit awareness training (SO good) and accepting a promotion at work!! (omg!) 🙌🏽 Keep your head up folks, even if you’re going through tough times, that sunnier horizon will appear 🙏🏽☀️🤗 #tgif #museumofnature

It’s International Scotch Day, and our (sold-out) Nature Tastes: Scotch event is just around the corner on Feb 28! Botany curator, Jennifer Doubt, has been combing our botanical archives for whisky-infused stories to share at the event.⠀

Early female natural historian, Elizabeth Taylor, was discouraged from pursuing her goal of travelling up the Mackenzie River to the Arctic Ocean with the Hudson Bay Company in 1892. Although she herself expected “the mosquito to be the most formidable enemy” she’d encounter, dissuaders warned that she might be murdered in her sleep for the whisky needed to preserve her specimens (this from her own account of the completed journey in Outing Magazine, 1895).⠀

Did you know that the Hudson’s Bay Company was involved in the trade and sale of liquor, among other commodities for a few hundred years? It even produced its own brand of whisky, starting around 1925.⠀

Oui, c’est bien cela! Ce crâne de Champsosaurus est sur le point de passer une tomodensitométrie à l’hôpital pour animaux Alta Vista d’Ottawa. Pourquoi soumettre à un tel examen ce crâne de reptile fossile aux allures de crocodile ? Pour étudier ses oreilles bien sûr ! En examinant deux crânes de Champsosaurus du Musée, l’étudiant de deuxième cycle de l’Université Carleton Thomas Dudgeon a pu confirmer que les orifices auditifs se trouvaient bel et bien sous le crâne.⠀

Yes, that’s right. That’s a Champsosaurus skull about to get a CT scan at Ottawa’s Alta Vista Animal Hospital. Why would you scan this ancient, crocodile-like reptile’s fossilized skull? To look for its ears, of course. Using two museum Champsosaurus skulls, Carleton University graduate student Thomas Dudgeon confirmed that its ear openings really were on the bottom of its skull.⠀

#tbthursday Nature Nocturne 🌿
Went to the butterfly exhibit at the Museum of Nature today. What a change from the cold, wintery day outside as we walked around the hot and humid enclosure. The butterflies were everywhere and a few even settled on their human visitors. #butterflies #butterflyexhibit #museumofnature #museumofnatureottawa
It is said that wisdom lies in not seeing things, but seeing through things. -

Pooping Is Dangerous When You’re a Sloth!⠀
Sloths’ extreme slowness makes them extremely vulnerable on the ground. There are only two reasons a sloth will leave a tree: to find a mate and to poop. One of the strangest things about sloths is that they defecate and urinate only once every 10 to 21 days!⠀

Fact: If temperatures go below 10°C a monarch's muscles become paralyzed and they cannot fly.⠀

You think you move a bit slower in the winter? Well, monarch butterflies have got you beat! If temperatures go below 10°C monarch's muscles become paralyzed and they can't fly. This is why monarchs must hurry during fall migration. The butterflies mustleave their northern habitat before they get trapped by the cold! ⠀
