Our time in Acadia National Park has been amazing. We enjoyed our hikes, time on the paddleboards, beach trips as well as just driving through the park. I thought I would show you some of the beauty Acadia has to offer. Therefore I’ve put together this picture blog of the flora and fauna of Acadia. We tried to find as much wildlife as possible. However, sometimes the girls weren’t able to be in stealth mode. For this reason, we scared more critters away then caught in my photos. However, we did hear an owl and saw lots of birds as well as the animals I do have pictures of.
This butterfly is a copycat Monarch -according to Ainsley. She learned this from her teacher in 3rd grade. Since Monarch butterflies are poisonous birds know not to eat them. Well, these butterflies use that as their defense as well. Hence, they aren’t monarchs but look-a-likes. Mother Nature is amazing.
I hope you agree with me when I say the beauty, especially the flora and fauna Acadia offers is amazing. We always enjoy going to Maine and being in Acadia. When visiting Acadia or any national park don’t forget to have your kids becoming Junior Rangers. Have you been to Acadia? What is your favorite part of the park? If not, I hope I’ve inspired you to put Acadia National Park on your bucket list.
