They might miss this the flutter of the wings of a little bluebird flitting in and out of an opening in his bluebird 'condo'.
They might miss the peeps of little ducklings, paddling at breakneck speed to keep up with mom.
Or the splashing of ducklings as they practice dipping into the water.
Or the honking of unseen geese lurking somewhere in the marsh.
Or the rustle of leaves as a caterpillar wiggles his way down a branch.
Or the subtle sound of dragonfly wings.
Or the plop of a turtle slipping into the water.
Do you 'plug in' whenever you are outside? Think about what you might be missing!
All photos in this post are from recent walks near my home, or near our Adirondack lakeside 'camp', or from paddling my kayak in the lake. I know it may not seem like an art teacher-y post, but listening is a part of being observant. If we don't open our eyes and ears, there's so much to miss. So maybe this is art teacher-y after all!
