A young child expresses Excitement at seeing a caterpillar

April Kids in Nature Photo Contest Winner

Rebecca Bunn took this photo of her two-year-old daughter, Nora, expressing excitement over a caterpillar found in their backyard in Hillsboro, Missouri. Nora’s brother, Carter, looks on. “The caterpillars were a daily nature study for our family in the spring,” said Bunn. “We enjoy exploring the wonders of our backyard, watching birds at birdfeeders, finding turtles under bushes and listening to woodpeckers pound away on trees.
