They start out by looking for tiny subjects to study.
The diversity of their discoveries never fails to delight.
And the tinier their discoveries are, the better.
Each specimen is closely observed.
Inquisitive minds peer through inquisitive eyes...
... at a curious world that can always surprise.
Crawling or not, each new find is a wonder.
Some have shells, some have skins, some have feathers.
No legs, six legs, two legs, red legs, yellow legs, blue legs.
Squirming, crawling, running, hopping, and flying. (These are not mosquitoes.)
Some stay still and others cannot.
This one waves its antennae very quickly.
This one isn't with us anymore, but it's still an opportunity to learn and discover. The tiny scientists are very hands-on in their research (not the cause of the butterfly's demise).
Eventually, my tiny scientists will know more than I can ever imagine. They're already teaching me about the many wonders of our world.
