This is what happens ... when you tell some of the neighborhood kids that you've got a trail camera running. :) They were very curious why I had a rock hanging by a rope in our front yard. The whole idea that salt actually started out looking like a rock was new to them, as was the idea of impurities in the salt coloring it. At right, the trail camera caught me in the act of teaching them about rock salt and the attraction of deer (and other animals) to it. Below is what happened after I left! :)
Their use of a mirror was wonderfully creative. And I like the way they got their cat Dusty into the action!
