I went to a really fun career day this morning at DP Morris Elementary -- I think lots of young naturalists should come out of that school! Well, ok, so the big animal stickers that I brought may have helped a bit too... ;)
Explored this little pond by the apartments after for a few moments.
Found in the garage at work while it rained and rained outside. :)
Looked like a freshly made mud nest...
Wonder where a dauber found the wet mud (or any moisture at all)!
Located in outside door jamb.
Common name - Mud dauber
Genus - Sceliphron
The Mud dauber or as known as a wasp was not bothering anybody but itself. The mud dauber was hovering over a bush that contained flowers, since the Mud Duaber is alive it is called biotic. Even though there were around 3-4 people around the wasp it didn’t seemed alarmed by us observing it.
Since the weather was so awesome today, I spent the afternoon exploring this other park by Lake Worth.
As I was exploring Britton park before lunch today, I ran into a naturalist from California! Where to find naturalists? In nature, of course! Great to meet you, John! :)
the colors on the legs made this species seem likely
Building a nest under the eaves.
A pretty sketchy park -- lots of homeless folks and broken liquor bottles and stuff... Well, nature was still there. :)
