Nature Around the Net

"forest", "forest trail", "trail"

This week there were amazing things happening out in the world and beyond: the Harvest Moon appeared brightly in the night sky, an astroid passed between Earth and the moon, and planets aligned.

We also came across some great posts, photos, and articles to share with you:

  • This shot shows just how cute grasshoppers can be.
  • Peter Gray wrote a fascinating piece that gets to the heart of the nature of play. It is long but well worth the read!

Rock, "heart rock"

We also have some exciting news here at Mud Puddles to Meteors: we reached 100 Likes on our Facebook page this week. Thank you for supporting us there!

We are sharing lots of neat posts, photos, and other nature news on Facebook and Twitter, so if you would like to stay in the loop please Like and Follow along on those sites too!

There are some amazing photographs being added to the Flickr group as well. We would love to see your photos of nature in your neighborhood in the group!

    Thanks so much for linking up to our blog! Just a heads up, its “Tales” not “Tails” (though sometimes I DO think the kids may be growing some tails… ;)) Great blog! :)

      Gah! Sorry Amelia! I will correct that ASAP!
      Funny about the kids growing tails. I feel the same way sometimes!
      Thanks for being a great sport about the mistake! :-)

    Great post and awesome links. Didn’t realize that about the hares but can see that would be a big problem. Laughing about how cute grasshoppers can be and thinking No they are not. We had thousands of them this summer and they really really liked our garden. Hate to say this but even the dog learned to hunt them down and finish them off from watching us do the same. The Macro shots of the bugs were wonderful but lets see them try that with live bugs :) Love the photo of the rock in the tree stump/limb, pretty neat. I think it’s time to get my son away from the Tv and video games for a nature walk! Have a great Sunday and thanks for sharing.
