Nature-inspired Comics?

My son brought me “False Knees” for Christmas. It turns out I knew the young man who dreams these up, from away back - Josh Barkman. He was possibly 5 at the time I knew him, and my kids played with him and his other siblings. I’m talking about early 1990’s here! One of my favorites:

Got this out of a Reader’s Digest about 10 years ago. I really like it because I am a veteran and at the time was doing my Master’s on freshwater turtles.

I actually knew the guy who does False Knees when he was a kid. I was an adult at the time, and me and my kids used to visit the family outside Flesherton Ontario. Don’t remember him at all - just one of the kids milling around. Small world.

I love this. I don’t think it really needs the explanations, though. To those who know, it’s self explanatory!

Rohan Chakravarty is an indian naturalist who makes environment-related comics. He was formerly a dentist. I was introduced to his comics by my friend and naturalist @mahathi who also introduced me to inat. Edit: I forgot to add that this cartoonist is on inat, @rohan_chak
