Part of our home-preschool curriculum that we put heavy emphasis on is Nature Exploration as we believe the relationship between human and nature is a natural and essential one, and both need each other to ensure the sustainable well-being of both sides. Therefore, we will usually go out in the morning to say hello to some of the natural neighbors from the garden behind our block! While zoos, safaris and animals parks are great, often, the fascinating world of nature exists in our own backyards and neighborhoods.
This morning we managed to capture some pictures of the Autumn Leaf Caterpillars (Doleschallia bisaltide) and the local Changeable Lizard (Calotes versicolor), many others, including the Gulf Fritillary Butterflies and various local birds, were just too swift for my phone’s camera .

*Update: we figured out that the caterpillars in picture are actually the Autumn Leaf Caterpillars (Doleschallia bisaltide) and not Gulf Fitrillary Caterpillars (Agraulis vanillae).
