Thoughts on the Solar Eclipse


Yesterday, I observed the solar eclipse from my backyard using solar viewing glasses.  I also observed what animals were doing during the eclipse.  One very small rabbit with a white spot on their head was nestled under echinacea flowers eating leaves.  The rabbit was only about 50 cm away from me.  The honeybees, bumblebees, and cabbage white butterflies continued to pollinate flowers as usual.  The animals in my yard seemed completely unaware of the event.  The sky never went dark, but the sun looked like a bright yellow moon, or an orange slice, through the solar glasses.
