Project Noah and Nature Pictures

Do you or your kids like to take pictures of the nature you see around you? This picture was taken in a soccer field parking lot.

 Isn't nature wonderful and amazing! We love to watch birds, our cats, plants, and anything else we find. This picture was taken in our yard.

 It doesn't mean that we have to go for nature walks all the time. All of these pictures were taken in our every day lives without going out into a forest. This picture was taken at a relatives' house.

 There is a website that you can post sitings and you can search sitings all around the world. It's called Project Noah. This was also taken at a relatives' house.

 Even if you never post a picture (sighting), you can look at insects, animals, and plants from all around the world. We really enjoy looking at strange and interesting creatures that we can't even see in a zoo.

 People from other areas of the world may find your pictures interesting as well and follow your sightings. This picture was taken at a park.

 This picture was taken in my garden.

 When we went to a museum, we saw these.

 These were also at the museum.

 I love the camouflage on this insect. The great thing about posting a picture like this on Noah is that it forces us to find out what it is, exactly. We can't just guess, or assume. We are looking it up to confirm, so that we can share correct information on Project Noah.

This snake moved fast! I only got a picture of him as he slipped under a porch. 

Project Noah has been a wonderful find for us. We have a friend who also posts sightings and we follow her. She is on my Facebook and when she posts something I can see it right away. The cool thing is that this friend lives in a different part of Canada, so we learn what species live there compared to here.
