We’ve been seeing some incredible things in nature this summer just in our local area.
Here’s a large hawk we spotted outside our kitchen:
Here’s a cicada we found outside our front door (communing with a pill bug):
Here’s a dragonfly, who seemed to have an epic and tragic battle with wasps, that we found on the sidewalk on the playground at Lee District Park:
Here are some geodes, Biggie split open:
Here’s a fossil he found at Dinosaur Park in Laurel, Maryland (a horse tail):
And some lignite:
And a conifer fossil — it was significant enough that we couldn’t hold onto it!
