The City of Kalamazoo's leaf composting station on the eastside has always had a draining problem.
But the resulting puddle ends up sprouting life and is no problem for visiting solitary sandpipers, who prey on giant waterbugs, tadpoles, grasshoppers and basically anything else that moves.
Where there is water - there is life, and where there is life - there I am taking pictures. And it doesn't get any more urban looking than these concrete canyons.
The urban animal.
