Then along came a mammal...a young raccoon. Thanks to the wind direction, it didn't get my scent, and it didn't see me or hear the clicks of the camera as I took a LOT of pictures of it foraging in the puddle. I don't know what it was eating, but it was finding very small things (dragonfly nymphs? tiny tadpoles? aquatic insects other than odes?)
Eventually an eddy of wind changed direction, and away it went, back into the woods. But it was fun to watch it methodically working that puddle.
