COLUMBIA — Last week, Missourian photographers captured images of the Living Windows Festival on Friday in downtown Columbia, the record-setting warm temperatures on Wednesday and high school sports.

Kile Brewer captured this image of Stephens College student Jessica Bock's reflection in a mirror as she plays an angel in My Secret Garden's "Every Cloud Has a Golden Lining" display at the Living Windows Festival on Friday in downtown Columbia.

In this photo by Stuart Palley, cars cross the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Street on Monday evening. Columbia saw a record daily high temperature of 75 degrees on Monday.

In this photo by Jaime Henry-White, MU journalism student Catherine Cojocaru works on her computer while sitting next to the Thomas Jefferson Statue on Monday on the Francis Quadrangle. Temperatures on Monday broke the record set in 1998.

In this photo by Bobby Watson, Morpho butterflies are suspended on pins at the Enns Entmology Museum. The museum, which was founded in 1874, houses nearly 6 million insects.
