Insects, Insects, Insects

We have been studying Entomology with our 4H curriculum book. Those of you who know me, know I do not like bugs. But this has actually been quite interesting. Today we are making a sort of bug's eye. Using straws that is. Bugs have compound eyes, and if you care to read about them you can here. The video below is a nice little instructional video about insects. Tomorrow we will be at the nature refuge for Photography class. It is actually a two day class, but I am unsure of when the second class will be. Since I thought DJ broke our other camera, by dropping it, I bought a new one. Only problem is I don't know how to use it well, LOL! DJ was given the old one for his photography lessons. Oh, btw I found a cool moisture experiment for Science which I will share one day this week.
