Gwynn has been growing sunflowers this summer! The tall one, before it bloomed, measured over 8 feet tall!! She is quite proud of them.
GWynn’s pet of the day: A big old bull frog!! I love how she’s holding him.
Gwynn’s pet of the day: a Katydid! She said when she picked him up, he would try to bite her with his grasshopper like mouth parts. He also made this sound that was really cool! A combination of a cricket and a cicada! :D
Gwynn has spent her summer collecting the creatures she finds outside, plying with them for a while, and letting them go. I’ll post the pictures of these creatures over the next couple weeks.
Today, she found this cicada that was on it’s way to shedding it’s shell. :D
buggirl said: Hi! I love that your daughter is a future entomologist and you nurture her love for the natural world. It's so cool. Anyway, in case you didn't know, your leaf bug is a Greater Angle Winged Katydid. Microcentrum rhombifolium. And it will puke in self defense if you pick it up ( so strange!). Have a great day!
Sorry it took so long to answer. I don’t log in often unless Gwynn asks me too. Thank you so much for the information! I’m glad you enjoy her blog.
