Incredibly long-necked, long-tailed Sauropod dinosaur

This is what I think will be a short gallery from a visit to the newly reopened fossil hall at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. We’ve been wanting to go for almost half a year, but the lines outside the museum were so long, we decided to wait until after the tourist season. Unfortunately, school is out this week, so the lines were almost as long as before.

In any case, the “dinosaur exhibit” (which is what everybody calls it) is excellent, and according to the museum, "The exhibition tells the story of 3.7 billion years of life on Earth, highlighting the connections among ecosystems, climate, geological forces and evolution and encouraging visitors to understand that the choices they make today will have an impact on the future.”

Best to view in "Original" because other versions resized by Pbase are decidedly unsharp.

The golden one, posted earlier:

Nikon Z 7 ,Nikkor Z 24-70 f2.8 S
1/100s f/8.0 at 40.0mm iso5000 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original auto

Incredibly detailed and sharp shot ... impressive work. Impressive also are these creatures which, hard to imagine, once roamed the earth. VV

Cool image. This room reminds me of the movie Jurassic Park. Watch out for raptors on the loose!

Wow, what a great image! I would enjoy visiting this area!
Raymond26-Nov-2019 18:19
Wow, impressive, you bet I'd stand in line to see that. I remember seeing something like that at the Golden State Park in San Francisco, I was in awe standing before those bones, to think they actually existed … amazing!
