Impromptu Nature Study

Sometimes nature study just happens-- we stumble upon opportunities to view God's creatures up close and personal...

Like finding tadpoles in the birdbath

Can you see them? They're the black spots. (You can bet I put several books on tadpoles on hold at the library thanks to this close encounter and the many questions I couldn't answer!)

Or discovering a praying mantis... who somehow got into our house and had to be "escorted" outside.

Mr. Praying Mantis was inspected closely for a long, long time.

Here's an up close and personal shot.

And here's a final one-- I couldn't get one of him praying, though it wasn't for lack of trying... he just wasn't into posing for the camera!

Pin It!

Perhaps he felt like his prayers were a little private!!

Love the nature photos. Isn't God's creativity the best?!
