Part scientist and part artist, Joseph Scheer spends his time photographing creatures of the night, showing details caught in light and enlarged for us day dwellers to see. We just want to know: Does the monster under our bed have fangs or claws or both? During Nocturnal Splendor, on view through June 22 at the Texas Discovery Gardens, Scheer's photographs will show unseen sights such as the fine hairs and the intricate patterns on moths. Featured in National Geographic and The New York Times, the photographs involve the use of high-resolution scanners and digital printing technology. The gardens are located at 3601 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Fair Park, and are open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. Admission is $1.50 to $3 daily except for Tuesdays when admission is free. Call 214-428-7476.
