Eclipse Spooktacular: How Nature Reacts to Sudden Darkness

27th March, 2024


Twilight Zone: The sudden drop in light and temperature confuses many creatures used to daylight patterns. 

Birds Fall Silent: Birdsong may cease, and some species might even try to roost for the "night."

Buzzkill: Bees might return to their hives, thinking dusk has arrived early. 

Flower Power: Some flowers, like morning glories, could close their petals, tricked by the false nightfall.

Critter Confusion: Nocturnal animals may wake up, while diurnal ones prepare to settle for the night.

It's Temporary! This odd behavior ends once the sun returns, highlighting nature's dependence on light.
