Nature Study as We Go About Our Everyday Life
This week we had some new and interesting things come our way for nature study. We seem to find things. We saw this field of wildflowers along the bike trail in our local area. The field was so pretty in the early morning light and I couldn't resist taking a few photos.
I even got a photo with a bee in it as part of our insect study this week.
My son found this moth in the bathroom and called me in to get a photo of the "pretty moth" on the wall. Cool.
We visited the pond this week and we brought home some water, plants, and some fish. This snail came along for the ride.
This is something else new for me...not sure what it is. The fruit looks sort of like a cherry. Isn't it frustrating when you just don't know what you want to know? I will try to figure it out and come back and edit. This was in the parking lot where I was waiting for the boys.
Edit: Thanks everyone....rose hips! The bush is so big and I didn't realize it was a rose but I am sure that everyone is right....rose hips. Thanks again.
The cutest thing we saw this week was a squirrel eating walnuts from our tree. He had such a long bushy tail and he didn't mind that we watched him as he nibbled. There are plenty of nuts for everyone. My son discovered the squirrel while he was in the backyard working on a project.
We had a lot of incidental nature study this week. I love that when it happens.
