I often enjoy starting my day by reading the latest post on Next Door Nature
. This well-written blog, published by Kieran Lindsey who teaches at Virginia Tech with me, includes fascinating insights about nature that we encounter in urban settings. On her blog, she includes a fun feature called "Street Creatures." While I was in Iceland this summer, I was often reminded of "Street Creatures," because public art is everywhere you turn in this beautiful country. So let's take a look at a few of Iceland's "Street Creatures." There were the mammals,
and the birds,
and, of course, the butterflies which are always a favorite of mine. It was surprising how many butterflies and moths I saw in Iceland (the living ones, not just the art). After a little sleuthing, I learned that most are summertime visitors, just like me!
