Audubon Insectarium - Butterflies

The best area in the insectarium was the butterfly garden.  I wish I would have time to take more, but I was worried that Micah might fall in the coi pond and plus they keep it really humid in there so I was burning up by the time we left.

Audubon Insectarium - Grasshoppers

One of the workers noticed Luke’s grasshopper shirt and I told him that Luke’s nickname is Grasshopper.  So he said, “Grasshopper, you need to go check out the the grasshoppers that are native to Louisiana.”

Audubon Insectarium – Bug Appetit!

There was an opportunity to sample some bug recipes:  southwest wax worms, crispy cajun crickets, cinnamon bug crunch, and some cookies with bugs on top.  Every one in our family tried at least one.  Tate didn’t like his cajun cricket so he gave it to Micah.  That’s why she’s making a funny face in the first one.  Amy & I tried the cinnamon bug crunch.  Miriam ate a cookie and went back for more bugs. Micah wanted more later because everybody was eating something.
