Despite appearances from my posts, Mead Gardens has more to offer visitors than just birds. Even though it's a small park surrounded by homes, you can still find wildlife there. While I favor birds, when I see other wildlife, I'm quick to turn my attention to it. There's a very nice butterfly garden there, and I need to spend more time there, not just because there's a Ruby-throated Hummingbird that frequents it, but because there's some nice butterflies that you can find there as well. So here's just some of the wildlife I've seen at Mead Gardens over the last week or so. No butterflies, I know; I need to remedy that.
I hope you don't mind the indiscretion of these squirrels. Some people don't like portrayals of this behavior among animals, but I figure it's natural animal behavior. I try not to think of them as hawk food. They have value in their own right if they would just stay out of bird feeders.
This dragonfly was from July, but I figured I'd stick it in here as well.
