The National Museum of Natural History had a special exhibit "2012 Nature's Best Photography Awards." If you like wildlife and landscape photography, you will enjoy these images. I also liked the permanent mammal exhibit which shows how mammals adapted to environmental changes over the course of millions of years. For sheer drama, though, it is hard to beat the 14-foot African elephant in the museum's rotunda.
Instead of showing my own needlework today, here are a few photos of the best yarn bombing display I have yet to see. A group called the "Guerrilla Stitch Brigade" spent hundreds of hours crocheting and knitting an incredible array of critters and a garden's worth of plants and flowers to adorn the Rosslyn, Virginia, sculpture by Christopher Gardner entitled "Cupid's Garden."
