This excerpt from a student nature journal gives a bug's-eye view of the forest world. Students were asked to interview an organism and then journal about it. While we easily can pick out apex predators and other popular large animals, not much notice is given to the really small life forms that are truly responsible for the well-being of the entire ecosystem.
How often do we get down on the ground and interact with nature at that level? If we take the time to look at things from a different perspective, we can gain insight into new worlds. Stepping outside of ourselves may well help us to be more mindful of our interactions not only with people but also with the natural world. Sharing it with others can only intensify the experience.
