The first cold week of sincere fall always catches some of the insects by surprise. They are easily found, half-stunned, half-dying, staggering around where they normally wouldn’t be.
Our students carefully pick them up and bring them in for morning “science”.
This is a grotesque, large, creepy, disgusting but fascinating stick bug. Everything is bigger in Texas we say, so I guess that means gross bugs too.
And this is a gorgeous monarch butterfly, rescued off a windshield by another young gentleman.
We try to train our students to be on the lookout for unusual things from creation.
“God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.”
