Again, sorry to those who hate spiders! But… look how beautiful they are!
September has ended and so has the field trip I helped run, teaching children about the prairie ecosystem. In that short month, I walked with 500+ students armed with butterfly nets. They found a wide variety of treasures: many spiders, 2 praying mantis, beetles, butterflies, moths, damselflies, 1 snake, and even some deer bones. I couldn’t tell whether they had more fun finding things or running through grasses taller than themselves, while waving their nets high in the air!
I had a blast too!
