The museum-aquarium of in the French city Nancy  (famous mostly for its art-nouveau architecture) is really worth visiting. The first floor hosts one of the most impressive aquiariums in Europe I have ever seen. The diversity of species one may see there from all ends of the world, as well as salt and sweet water species: all are just breathtaking!

 The second floor meets the visitors with a huge "arbre généalogique de la vie sur terre". Then all of species families are presented in the next hall.

One of the reason to visit the museum last weekend was the temporary exhibition of the famous French wildlife photographer Vincent Meunier. The wildlife expo is called "From dusk till dusk" and half of it shows wildlife and landscapes photos from Lorraine (the region Nancy belongs to). The pictures are on display till February 2012. A short preview is offered with the my shot below...

Helene's (first e has accent aigu, second e has accent grave, third e is unaccented: my lappy does not have these accented e's) eyes are so sharp! I thought that's part of the display! Only when I saw her comment I realized it's your reflection!
