Who says we don't have seasons in L.A.? The jacarandas are blooming, the air smells like jasmine and the Butterfly Pavilion has opened up at the Natural History Museum. LAist stopped by to take some photos of the more than 53 species of butterflies and moths, as well as the lush ecosystem they call home through September. Every experience is a little different—the plants will grow and change (and so will some of the caterpillars you see here). The Pavilion is open from 10 am until 5 pm. And if you're really into creepy-crawlies, you can also catch the Bug Fair going on today and tomorrow at the museum.
