The distracted woolly mammoth

I had tried to get this woolly mammoth from a different perspective with my Nikon on our first visit, but it was just impossible to get a good shot. It still was with my iPhone, but the fossil was so impressive, here it is with all the reflections and distractions.


The “dinosaur exhibit” -- as everybody calls it, although it’s much more than that -- in the newly reopened fossil hall at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History is fascinating.

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

Amazing how these bones have been preserved. Love the colors of the warm ochres and blues.

I like the diorama In the background - today’s animals looking at what came before.

fascinating skeleton...the razzle dazzle of reflections is fun, and the studious man sits in for us all..

That is one big creature! WOW!

I actually like it this way. Nice lighting on it. The front almost looks like it isn't part of that huge carcass. I won't tell you what I see. Then I'd be a crazy old lady. :-)

I like having the man in the shot because he adds scale.
