The first time I visited the California Academy of Sciences back in April, I went immediately to the Rainforests of the World exhibit. The 90’ diameter dome is a perfect biosphere taken right out of the Amazon. They keep the temperature inside at around 85° at 75% humidity. Exotic birds and butterflies are everywhere. About half way up the spiraling walkway I noticed a pair of strawberry poison dart frogs on a plant just off the left side. Standing there with my 50mm lens stretched out over the railing, I felt lucky to have found such a great view of these amazing little frogs. This time I came prepared with my 400mm, crossing my fingers that I’d be able to find them again. I did find them. In exactly the same place as they were the last time. Touché, CalAcademy. Your plastic frogs won this round.
