NASELLE - Bob Pyle, renowned lepidopterist, visited a very excited bunch of students at Naselle School last Friday, Jan. 24. The students of Mrs. Tienhaara's second-grade class had been studying butterflies and had an abundance of questions.
They learned that butterflies taste with their feet, smell with their antennae, come in all shapes and sizes and some even travel hundreds of miles to migrate.
The highlight of the day was watching a slide show called "Butterfly Faces," with all kinds of pictures of butterflies on people's faces.
The class found the slide show to be very informative and it was interrupted once again with those unending questions.
The second-graders were left with a love and curiosity for butterflies.
Pyle is truly an inspiration to the scientist inside us all, reported Tienhaara.
