There's something about nature that I've always loved. I think insects are incredible. I love the mathematics of flowers. I love watching ecology in real time I love that evolution has created such amazing species to make the world as beautiful as it is. Just the colors of our world astound me. How can flowers be so vibrant?! how can robin's eggs be so perfectly blue?!
I want to be a naturalist when I grow up.
Today we spent the afternoon being our own little family of backyard naturalists.
Metta ate a lot of these. We aren't sure if all of the plants in our backyard are safe to ingest- but so far so good. She's fine.
check out the perfect symmetry of the petals. I love it.
And look what the boys spotted up in the corner of our deck overhang! It's nearly IMPOSSIBLE to get a good picture of. I nearly broke my neck retrieving these shots. But it was totally worth it. The Mama bird hangs out in here a lot. Protecting her soon to be baby birds.
this shot was the killer. I had to cling to the deck overhang timbers with three fingers- perched across the railing on my tip toes- all while trying to hold my camera above the overhang and to focus through tiny slats.
Three tiny almost birds. I can't wait until they hatch!!!
finishing our Earth day with bubbles. Metta had some to drink. Kent got some in his nose.
