Nature Pics

PeekingI spy with my little eye...

Where's Waldo?

For my sweet nieces! (Please can I keep it? It followed me home...)

(Whispering) Such a rare and glorious sight to behold, the elusive Hammerhead Gecko makes its appearance only through stealth and the protection that the quiet solitude of night affords...

This is actually a gecko with a moth in its mouth. We witnessed this life and death struggle close up on the window screen in our kitchen. Husband and I were pretty fascinated. The kids were pretty grossed out!

Our first nature walk of the new school year... ended before it ever really began yesterday after my children were introduced to this well known menace called the sticker burr. We decided to stay close to home which is where we found all of the other creepy crawlies, so I guess it wasn't that bad. We had gone to the library earlier in the day and picked up a ton of some books on tree leaves and tree identification. Our walk around the neighborhood afforded us the opportunity to notice the shapes of the different leaves. I think next time we will gather some and try to identify them.

Have a great Friday!
