You have to see what our kiddos found just outside of our apartment! Remember this picture of our kids when we first moved here? This is to the right of our apartment and both sides are lined with trees! We ride bikes and scooters there and it's on the way to the pool, so we travel the territory a bunch!!
My nephew, Vince, found a nest in one of the trees! Look what it had in it! Looks like a photo from National Geographic I know! Really it's just courtesty of Tam and Vanessa - doing a shoulder sit to get me high enough to snap it!In another tree look what we found!! Just barely hatched - only about 2 days old! There are 2 more nests - one has the mama sitting on the eggs every minute! All our attempts at a photo scare her away, so I gave up! Our kids have had the neatest opportunities here!
In one post I talked about lightning bugs! Here are some shots I found on the internet, but they don't do them justice! They are the most amazing things! When the fly their behinds go back and forth from not lighting up to lighting up! You catch glimpses of light and here and there - all over!
They are easy to catch! I can't kill a fly with a fly swatter because I'm not coordinated enough to get it - I can even catch these! Bo catches jars of them every night and then lets them go the next night!! The wildlife here is amazing and it's everywhere!!
