This is part of a series of “Animal Portraits” featuring animals that can be found around Indiana. I wanted to introduce people to the local flora and fauna, while also elevating them. It is very easy to treat small animals as pests, as intruders who should be eliminated. But I would argue they play a very important role in supporting our ecosystems.
