Amazing Things You Find in Nature

Over the past few months, I have taken a lot of pictures of interesting things that I found in my backyard. I saw animals and a cool math leaf. I bet you are wondering what a math leaf is. It is a leaf that has a pattern on it that has something to do with math. I will show you a picture of it soon.

Usually, a covey (k∂v • ee) of quails comes to our backyard. The biggest amount of quails I have ever seen was 34 quails!

Here are all of the quails in the backyard.

Here is a male quail (hey, a rhyme :-)). 

Here is a female quail. 

We also see other animals such as deer.

Here are two deer grazing (eating grass).

Here is one deer eating grass and one aware of my camera's sound. That's a smart deer.

Now both of the deer are aware of my camera's sound, and they are running away.

Now the two deer are running away really fast because they think the little click that my camera makes is an enemy coming to get them.

 Here is the math leaf!

The math leaf looks like a fraction! The numerator and denominator are not numbers though. They are colors! The fraction is red greens (that sounds really weird)! 

Here is the other side of the math leaf. That fraction is green yellows. 

What interesting animals do you have in your backyard?

 Have you ever found a covey of quails?

Have you ever investigated plants to see if their were any cool leaves on them?

Having Fun With Christmas Toys

Over winter break, I went to my nana’s house to celebrate Christmas. When I got there I saw all of my nana’s Christmas toys.  I loved them when I was little, and I still love them. I sat down and started playing right away!

Soon, it was very late at night so I had to go to bed.  When I woke up the next morning, I played with them from 6:00 A.M to 10:00 A.M and had so much fun!  Then I had to leave to go to back to my grandmas house (that is where I had come from). I was really sad to have to leave, but I knew that I was going to come back the next week and stay for four whole days!  

The next week, when I returned to my nana's house, my cousin was there.  We immediately started playing with all the toys. I took lots of pictures.

Here are some pictures:
