One thing I love about nature study is that it can happen so unexpectedly. We can be going about our normal routines and suddenly find something very interesting to sketch and study. A few nights ago I was feeding the dogs outside and I spotted a large, beautiful moth on the front porch. I quickly called to the boys, because they love to catch all kind of creatures to observe.
The boys brought their net to daddy and we soon had a beautiful moth waiting to study the next morning.
here about this fun caterpillar. It is called a Polyphemus moth. The boys sketched the moth and then let it go in the woods.
