TFN Juniors Fall Nature Club – Late Season Creatures

Hi TFN Juniors!

Great to see you all yesterday, share your nature experiences through your photos and get tips from Siena about nature photography. Thanks, Siena!

Please check out the slideshow for many late season insects that let themselves be picked up so easily and examined. At this time of year we can also look for tracks, scat and the remains of nests. And what about the birds and amphibians? Still up to some interesting hijinks!

Also, Siena has added some labels to the slides below so you can refresh your memory of the principles of nature photography. I am excited to check back on some of my best photos to see how these rules helped make it a great photo.

See you all next Wednesday, when we will investigate weasels in Toronto–particularly mink. Tomorrow and Saturday are supposed to be fine weather–hope you have a chance for some nature adventures. Send us some shots–it helps us feel that we were along on the walk

Toronto Field Naturalists wishes to acknowledge this Land through which we walk. For thousands of years, the Land has been shared by the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinaabe. Toronto is situated on the Land within the Toronto Purchase, Treaty 13, the traditional and treaty Lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is also part of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum, a covenant agreement between Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Wendat peoples and allied nations to peaceably share the land and all its resources. Today, the Land is home to peoples of numerous nations. We are all grateful to have the opportunity to continue to care for and share the beauty of this Land.
