This week is moth week in Exploring Nature With Children. We found a lovely Cinnabar caterpillar out on a walk this week. I am sorry I have no photos, but I found an interesting video about the Cinnabar on YouTube.
Another video you may wish to view is this one all about the taxonomy of moths and butterflies.
In our nature journals this week, Rose chose to sketch a Kingfisher, as she has been fascinated with them since we had the blessing to see one fishing at our local pond.
I chose Blackberries. I love blackberries both to sketch & eat! We pick them in the lane behind our house every summer. This year, however, someone has been and hacked them all down, which we are very sad about. I found this branch in the woods. There is hope for our Michaelmas jam tarts after all!
