Wild Suburbia

There’s a little place I frequent, teaming with finches, wrens, nuthatches, hummingbirds, butterflies, carpenter bees, occasionally a cooper’s or red-shouldered hawk, and wild rat terriers. It’s conveniently located in my backyard, and is full of wildlife largely thanks to my mom’s lovely garden (because I, like most of many other twenty-somethings, had to move back home after college for a little bit before heading out on my own). The photos in this album are of my mom’s veggie garden and the butterfly bush turned butterfly tree that’s taken over our backyard and attracts all kinds of butterflies, including our tiger swallowtails.
