I feel you are really bringing alive what has been in my mind for the past 18 months… the idea of putting in partitions with the insects in resin has changed this from being a liability to a stunning exhibit and I am also impressed by the transition areas between the zones. I also think the script is magical and really portrays what a fascinating and fun thing this is going to be.
