When the mercury pushes into the 90's humans act like the world is about to end. Wildlife adjusts.
This groundhog (woodchuck) took on a "What will be will be" attitude and sprawled out as flat as could be on the relatively cool walkway near the parking lot of Kensington Metropark Nature Center.
The gray treefrog (below) found sanctuary from the sun under a rug I had left on my deck rail to wash.
Now the rug must stay, for today is the second day in a row this master of camouflage and lightning fast bug-slurping has sheltered there during the heat of the day. And dusk the treefrog comes out to hunt!
