Silky, yellow pollen
Droopy tree leaves
(After some leading questions)
Tall, itchy grass
(mine is from a walk I took alone)
still, cool air
We also stopped to watch some GIANT ants, that were half red and half black. We saw an orb spider and its web and lots of wild grapes. We were tempted to eat some grapes but I was thinking about all of the possible bodily fluids that could result from eating something unfamiliar...gross, I know, sorry, but I was a little paranoid.
The "piez de reistance" was an Osprey. We didn't see it until we were in the van and leaving Chamna, it made its nest on top of an industrial something-or-other that is by the river. We didn't even know what we were looking at until we got home and looked it up in the bird book, (which we had forgotten, along with our water bottles, big mistake!). But when we figured it out, we were all pretty excited!
I like this nature study stuff.
