the baby raccoons we've been spying on since the spring are now teenagers, they were out yesterday morning at about 7 in the morning, which is a good bit past the time they normally retire to the trees for the day. when we left the house to get a better look, all three skedaddled up a pair of trees, two of them went up a tree beside the one that they live in. the fella above was braver than the rest, and climbed down to cross the fence to his home.
this little one just hung out, watching us, not seeming to mind that we were there at all. it was hard to get clear photos of them, as they moved around so much.
