The concentration is palpable. Thanks Debbie. It had rained continuously overnight so the raccoon was soaked and completely ignoring me sitting in the photographing the birds. I had to tell it not to go after the bird feeders before it paid me any attention. Looks suspicious to me. 😉 It had rained all night so it was soaked and probably hungry. It completely ignored me until I told it to stop eyeing up the bird feeders. I ignore anybody and everybody when I’m hungry too. We live in a holiday/tourist area so the raccoons (and bears) are used to being around humans and scavenging any food the holidaymakers leave lying around. Shades of: Clean up your plate! Not at all what I expected – great shot oops just re-read what I wrote. I always expect great photos from you, I meant the image was not what I expected from the title!!! You were expecting the camera to be looking up at a bird on a feeder. I suspect most people reading the title would expect that. 😊 exactly! Me, too. Pleasant surprise. Thanks! Thanks Ron. I’ve got a few birds and mammals looking up planned for the month. Hopefully it didn’t get any closer than that. Raccoons can cause serious damage. janet I was sitting in the yard photographing the birds so I just told it to forget about trying to get at the feeders. We bring the feeders in at night because of the bears and raccoons. Aww he is looking straight at you, David! Great shot. Thanks Teresa. He or she looks very healthy. Is it unusual for them to be out in the day time? Normally yes but it had rained all night so I suspect that it had taken shelter. Its fur was wet and bedraggled when it appeared. Plus, we live in an area popular with tourists and holidaymakers camping so they get used to being around humans day and night Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
