Did you see the eclipse?
Were you in the path of totality?
If you were, tell me about it!!
We, of course, were not.
I would have loved to have joined in the astronomical fun, but it would have required
a very long drive....many states away.
Here on the farm the light faded a little bit.
At the same time as the eclipse, a few clouds moved into the sky...
but the sun definitely dimmed a bit.
I received a lot of questions about how the animals reacted.
They were completely unaffected...
and went about life as usual.
Interestingly, though, both of our chrysalis(s) opened and butterflies emerged.
I missed them both.
This was all I found...
Tyler spent the day with us.
Check out this tiny nest in his hands...
We find these horse hair nests on the ground after storms.
They blow out of the big old pine tree by the barn.
They are so very tiny...too big for a hummingbird, but too small for much of anything else.
Perhaps a sparrow?
I am always fascinated by the patterns made by fungus.
I found this one on one of the tree stumps near the barn.
Isn't nature fascinating??
