Inside the museum warehouse. Amazing photo of the bird specimen storage room at the Smithsonian.

“This image, Chip Clark’s most requested photo, shows Roxie Laybourne, Smithsonian research associate, in front, with Birds Division collections staff members Beth Ann Sabo, James Dean, Bonnie Farmer, and Dawn Arculus, in 1992. The Museum holds the largest collection of vertebrate specimens in the world, with over 5.8 million specimens representing fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.

I wish this kind of natural history reverence was seen in every kid in the world. #picturenailsit
