1.The flora in Louisiana is so interesting to me because the land is green always and if can hunt for animals easy.Also too many beautiful garden or nature trees and flowers are look beautiful.

2.Travel in the water is so dangerous because the river and lake are dirty.Leaves and grass are cover the lake and river so it hard to see the alligators.Anyway the alligators is cute for me and i want to see real alligators.I want to feed the alligators too.

3.All the caterpillars are cute.The colors of caterpillars is the same with leaves colors.But when i watch caterpillars slid show one thinking come to me ''How they survive? do they live human.

Eh Htoo per-3

I think caterpillars are the most complicated insect in the world because there are so many different types of them. I wonder why they have so many different colors such as red,blue,yellow,brown,green and so on. I noticed that they all like to live on leaves even though they are different. It's strange that some of them have horns and some have long fur. It's amazing that some of them even can make their fake eyes. Can you believe that they can do all of those things. I love the way that they are smart.

I see a lots of Bayou in the water. I also the Late Des Allemands and Late Verret. I see the Swamp where all the Cypress trees were harvest and the alligator. I observe the Wetland and the Marshland too. I also observe many caterpillars such as Pearly Wood, Eumorpha Pandorus, Sphinx moth, Ctenucha Virginica, Elm Sawfly, Dasychiea, and more.There are a lots of alligators too.
