Description

Six baby skunks were meandering around on our driveway! They were so adorable! But they were very bold! They just walked right up to us! My dad and I sat down, and the skunks began to climb on my dad’s legs. It was a little bit unnerving! But they were super cute! They even made of strange noise. Notice that there is only one primarily black skunk with stripes. The rest are mostly white. Also they seemed to find refuge by hiding behind this tree.

Description

We have a small stream that runs through our field. (large front yard) This small, slow moving stream dumps into a little bigger creek. (The small moving stream is less than two feet apart) These darters used to live in this small, slow moving stream. Sometimes this stream has a rainbow colored oily surface. Water Purslane and a type of green algae grow in this stream. The darter’s beautiful colors are a powerful witness to their Creator, Jesus.
