sundry images from a Sunday afternoon

Earlier this month, we walked over to the California Academy of Sciences.  It is within walking distance from our home.  We took these pictures there and share them now.

This picture shows a species of cat, the Pampas cat (Bolivia).  Note that this exhibit is a picture, not a “stuffed” animal.  So, we are seeing a picture of a picture.
