In Nature News. . .

Well, it's not really news, since these are pictures from about a month ago.  Looks like I have some catching up to do!
We had a swarm of flying ants in the yard.

We had our last nature hike of the season with our friends.  This one was at Ijam's Nature center.

This picture reminded me of my grandpa and a verse he liked to quote:
"Every animal of the forest is mine and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains, and the insects in the fields are mine. If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it." Psalm 50:10-12
