Hello Junior Naturalists.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to the TFN Juniors slideshow this week. We always enjoy sharing the adventures everyone has been on this week. What a surprise for those of us that have been raising butterflies–a Black Swallowtail chrysalis was harboring a parisitoid wasp! What a handsome spider wasp mimic she was too!
Thanks for all the other observations–moths, grasshoppers and dragonflies. August is certainly the month that some of these creatures become active and visible
Please try Vannessa’s Spider game. Please print this, find the words, and send it in to be included in next week’s slideshow — or for the technically adventurous, try annotating the PDF with the program of your choice.
Also have a look at the Spider video from the Nature Channel. Wow, are spiders crazy predators–so clever at what they do!
Your challenge for next week is to find spiders–August is a great month for them–Good luck!
Jim and I are off for the next month. Monica is going to be managing the weekly Blogpost with Vannessa’s assistance. Monica will send a reminder notice on Monday. Thanks for your continuing support by sending in photos, drawings, poems and stories of your recent nature adventures.
