the poetry of evolution

How beautiful to see how similar we are to some creatures— and so wildly different— and to know that we all came from the same place, so very long ago! The Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de Toulouse is truly a wonderful place to visit for curious minds and lovers of the natural world. What struck me most was their skeleton window— species of all kinds, reconstructed in lifelike poses against the backdrop of the botanical garden.

I would have loved this place as a child, and certainly it brought back that feeling of wonder, awe, and discovery...
