Despite high temperatures, this afternoon we were gifted the most lovely breeze. This breeze along with an abundance of shade trees provided an excellent opportunity to enjoy a bit of God’s creation.
While I have never been a fan of insects, my children do not share the aversion. I encourage their interest. From a safe distance. Ahem. Today we enjoyed watching a praying mantis and a cicada. There was also a bit of interest in collecting cicada shells.
Hummingbirds have been frequent visitors as well but we have missed catching a photo of these little guys.
Our nature studies have been pushed aside for several weeks. Slowing working our way back into a regular afternoon of enjoying His creation.
What aspects of nature are you enjoying this summer?
