Wordless Wednesday: Wildlife among us

A lady beetle on a locust tree.

A toad along the road -rather, walking path of Forest Park.

Juvenile raccoon stuck in a trash can (at Forest Park). The summer nature camp kids discovered it. It was a real treat for them to see such a 'wild animal' in the city. We quietly tilted the can over and released it when the kids left.

A blurry image of a groundhog (a.k.a. woodchuck) in an open lot at the corner of Manchester and Hanley in St. Louis. I pulled over onto the gravel lot, jumped out the car, zoomed in and caught these images. The drivers on the very busy street thought I was crazy.

love the urban wildlife! Sometimes slowing down enough in a busy day to see those animals can be quite a gift. :-)

Happy WW!
