Experimenting

Last night I set up our black light to try to attract large moths.

 

 

 

 

I also tried a beer, banana and brown sugar mix that I spread on our trees to try to attract some moths too. I found a tulip tree moth and several little moths like the Isabella tiger moth and a bunch of different types of inch worm moths.

I hope I can try again this weekend and hopefully find a luna moth.

Today is National learn about butterflies day!

Here are some fun monarch butterfly facts:

Monarchs typically ride air currents of 800-1200 feet, The highest recorded was 11,000 feet!

Monarchs fly at a rate of 10-12 MPH.

Monarchs travel an average of 25 miles a day.

The largest known monarch migration site in Mexico is 216.21721 square miles.

Monarchs can flap their wings 120 times a minute.

A group of monarchs is called a congregation.

A group of monarch caterpillars is called an army.

A newly hatched caterpillar gains about 2,700 times its original weight before reaching chrysalis stage.

A large caterpillar can eat an entire milkweed leaf in less then 4 minutes.

Fearless

‘Fearless’ Acrylic paint By Audrey January 29 2018

“If we’re gonna fly, we fly like eagles
Arms out wide
If we’re gonna fear, we fear no evil
We will rise
By your power, we will go
By your spirit, we are bold
If we’re gonna stand, we stand as giants
If we’re gonna walk, we walk as lions”
   -Lions by Skillet –

Monarch

This year I have been trying to get pictures of monarch hatching from their egg. I have watched three hatch! I took all these pictures under the microscope. 

P.S. Meet “Bob” the caterpillar.

Today we did a color run. It was fun. I am not sure how fast I was, but I was the fastest girl and came in about tenth place. I had fun and hope to do it again.
