Midnight Nature Walk

When I stepped out the front door late last night, I was greeted by a ruckus. It was Friday night, and apparently the frogs and toads who call our field home were having a bit of a party.

It was black as … well, night — but I decided to take a video to record the noise. You won’t see anything, but if you listen to the audio in the video below, you’ll hear one of the (many) reasons I love living here:

Oh, and coming back into the house, I was greeted by a beautiful Luna moth that had perched itself on my front door.

An awesome homeschooling mom would have gotten the kids out of bed for an impromptu nature study, but I am only a halfway decent homeschooling mom.

I showed them the photo this morning.
