Sunday on the National Mall

In DC yesterday to see the Caillebotte and Wtewael exhibits at the National Gallery of Art. Both run until October 4, and I hope to have a second look while they are still here. No photography is allowed in special exhibits. Here are some views from my trip, not all at the NGA....

The butterfly garden along one side of the Natural History Museum is a fine display of flowers recommended for attracting butterflies. Yesterday was the first time I personally saw any butterflies there -- two monarchs! This was a nice surprise in the middle of the city, when we have noted a scarcity of that species this summer.

The National Construction Equipment Museum?
