Default Crayfish and Fireflies

A response on the "rodent" post reminded me: we found a healthy crayfish the other day and there have been loads of fireflies each night, two creatures we've not seen much of in the past few years.

My son wanted to use the crayfish for bait, but I talked to him about conservation and how eagle, firefly, and loon populations were rare most of my childhood but now, with protection, they're healthier. He let "Cray Cray" out in a nice leafy area.

As a parent, it's cool when these moments for learning present themselves organically.

Now, if we can only save the bees...
