The Firefly and Mantis World Tour!
Carol Leonard’s MMNP Capstone Project~2020
 
The Firefly and Mantis World book coverI am an aging graduate of the 2019/20 class of the Maine Master Naturalist Program in Ellsworth. As per a requirement of the course, I committed to sit in a “delimited site” for a full year observing all that went on in this circumscribed area through all four seasons. I chose to sit on a rock—a fabulous large glacial erratic in the middle of a beaver flowage actually—once a week for a year. The MMNs calls these defined observation areas as “delimited sites” but I prefer to call my perch a “mandala” as adopted by David George Haskell in his wonderful book The Forest Unseen: A Year’s Watch in Nature [2012]. I read this book a couple of years before my MMN course and I had the desire to spend a year observing in this manner even before I applied to the program. So now I had to do it!
 
So I did. My nature journal “The Firefly and Mantis World Tour” is now 1 year in the making and is currently at 100 pages. I will include some anecdotal stories of my findings at my mandala through the year (including insect cannibal sex).
