A spontaneous nature discovery sidetracked us for a few minutes when we noticed a butterfly as it was emerging from its chrysalis. It was hanging on the door stoop at a house where my son has a dog walking job. On his way in the door, he looked down and saw what looked like a leaf or dried flower petals stuck in some spider web pieces.
An Unexpected Nature Study
Realizing it was a chrysalis, and even though we were making a quick stop on our way to an appointment, we took a few minutes to observe. A closer look a butterfly is emerging! A miracle unfolding!
Five minutes of observing in awe equals a new perspective on the day. Nature discovery is all around us.
Take some time today to smell the flowers 🙂
We love Nature Anatomy: The Curious Parts and Pieces of the Natural World for nature study inspiration. It is is an amazing almanac of nature, which combines art and science in drawings, diagrams, and dissections for the natural world.
