February update

For some reason, 2017 is going by so fast that I am unable to slow it down and enjoy every moment of it.  I try to take some photos here and there, but I wish I have more to show.

The most exciting part about the first two months is the opportunity to observe lab-reared Bombus impatiens emerging from their brood cells.

I also returned to the Museum of Nature to see the reptiles exhibit again.

Skaters on Rideau Canal
I pretty much stayed indoors this past two months and only went out once to look at some of the Winterlude events.

Until next time.
