Panama City, Panama (2) – Miraflores Visitor Center

Miraflores Visitor Center is filled with detailed information on the creation and development of the Panama Canal and Miraflores Locks.  Unfortunately, due to the lighting and glass covered displays, most of the photos would have contained too many unwanted reflections.  Therefore, I refrained from taking any in these areas.

However, the top floor of the center had a wonderful exhibit on insects that can be found in Central America.  With low lighting, I was able to capture close up views of this vast living kingdom.
