I enjoy feeling like a little kid. Doing my training at the Nature Center affords me to opportunity to look wide-eyed and ask questions, blurt out associations that spring to mind, and sometimes just be the smart alec in the front row. I find myself pointing at things for the rest of the day, going “Oh! Look at that!” The world is amazing. So, I’m just going to post some photos today as my way of poking you in the shoulder and saying, “Lookee, lookee!”
Guess what we learned about at the Nature Center? Winter camouflage. The short-tailed weasel becomes the ermine in winter. He gets to change his name as well as his coat.
From my bedroom window, I can watch the sun set at about 5pm each evening. Last night, we got some intense colors. I wish I had a better camera. I’d set up a tripod…maybe on the porch roof, looking west, and do a long exposure.
