::Breighton:: 4-H Entomology Club

Posted 2018-09-20 16:51:16
I am so happy to have our little 4-H entomology club. We got to hunt for insects and talk bugs for a few hours. We all chased the same swallowtail for a while. Emmerson was the final catcher of the butterfly! I caught a wasp nest and when I tried to put the wasp into the kill jar it stung me. Ugh! Misery!

We had a great fun morning with the Farm Bureau building bee-hives that will be used in a display at the Country Fair at the end of October in Pinellas Park. We had over 70 nails, BIG NAILS, to hammer in to build our boxes! Now we have to decorate it and return it for the display at the fair. We have started our paining. There is more to come.

Here is me in my karate class. Normally there are no photos. Several of us went to the 4-H leader training and learned about new programs coming up and about conflict resolution.

We headed to Miami area for some diving. On the way south we explored Big Cypress and Everglades NP. Mom took us on a 20 mile off-road trip through the swamps and ecosystems of the everglades.
