More near the pond

More near the pond

On these outings, I do not think I can run out of interesting things to see. In this post, we were still near the pond. Keep looking! The more you know, the more you see and the more you see, the more you know.

Whoa, two!

Whoa, two!

It would have been cool to see the change of the slime mold and fungus overnight as it happened, but I am not going to set that up. So these will have to do. But wait there is more ūüėČ Keep looking! The more you know, the more you see and the more you see,…

Find it if you can

Find it if you can

Watching and observing nature is what we do right. Some times, it just being in the right place at the right time. You see something that catches your eye, maybe just a slight movement or color.

Snake!

Snake!

As often as I am out, it is surprising to me I do not see more snakes. They are masters of being not seen. However, it is not just humans that pass by them, Gracie sometimes steps pass them without noticing their presence. And no Gracie was not with us on this outing…too hot for…

Rainbow

Rainbow

The sky was all blue except for a wisp of a cloud on the horizon and I thought rainbow. What is this crazy woman thinking. Well it is Pride Month, so I thought I would celebrate that by finding the six colors in nature! Diversity is what makes our planet so wonderful! A Proclamation on…

Slime mold

Slime mold

I never realized or thought about how many slime molds(myxomycetes) are around us. Of course, it is hard not to miss the tapioca slime mold like I have shown y’all before. And you have probably seen the dog vomit/scramble eggs slime mold, but after watching a presentation at BRIT brown bag lecture by Ashley Bordelon…

Did you see it?

Did you see it?

Hope you didn’t sleep thru the sunrise this morning. For May, we got 5.29″. June is trying its best to catch up to May. I am sure many of you have got much more. Here is an article for the computer geeks that are also into the other sciences: Old-school computing: when your lab PC…
