Unplanned Pond Studies
A clever "fish trap" the kids made themselves. They caught fish (even a blue gill), a turtle, and were investigated by this snake. All were released unharmed back into the pond.
We're just back from our visit to Arkansas, to remember and celebrate the life of my kids' Poppy. Poppy and his wife lived/continue to live on 30 acres, with a pond, and the kids really love it there. But they are far braver about the wildlife than I think I would be! After seeing the snake pictured above almost go into their little fish trap they had built, they were still up for a swim!
