Climbing at the park

We took the bike to the park after school where Nefarious bumped into a school friend (and gleefully, an ice cream bike) and they played — and damaged their clothes, repeatedly sliding down the hills through the mud — climbing all over the outside of the structures… Her friend’s dad was a rockclimber, so unlike most parents seem to be, he wasn’t too freaked out by it and actually encouraged it. That’s her climbing of course. She’s played on the rock wall at MEC a few times and loves it… Anyway, they are both covered in bruises, scratches, and mud, and appear quite pleased at that (her friend’s dad said he’d have to bribe her with candy to keep the story from her mother — I’m not sure if he was joking or not). Lots of happy insects too, if I can attribute an emotion to an insect anyway — I took the picture below today.

    Seems like it’s [the video] a bit sped up. Quite apparent that she’s very accomplished at it. The wasp is coated in pollen. I would suspect that it’s at least reveling in the flourish of spring!

    Happy insects are great. From my experience, emperor scorpions have the most personality that I’ve seen in insects. They make neat pets.
