Hey Vikings and Friends!
Happy Monday!! I hope you spent some time outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather this weekend! We planted flower beds and enjoyed a picnic in our yard. While sitting on a quilt in the grass, we noticed lots of different bugs on the ground. One of them looked especially bizarre, like a fat black caterpillar. But it was a ladybug larva! Even though these baby insects don’t look as familiar or cute as adults, they do a great job of eating pest insects in your yard.
For today’s nature break, grab an old blanket, a magnifying glass if you have one, and your nature journal. Find a comfortable spot in your yard and explore the grass. Keep a record in your journal about how many different kinds of bugs you find.
