This evening we heard a bunch of banging around on the deck. We pulled open the drapes to see pair of very cute raccoons on our deck. They were not afraid of us at all, coming up to the slider to check us out. Check out Mr. Adventurous ->
Given my in-depth knowledge of Procyon lotor I knew that this must be a mating pair. They will be together for a month or so and then in 60-73 days, we will have a litter of raccoons living under the deck. Sure enough, they scampered off for a little sumtin' sumtin' on the lawn. Nothing like having our own raccoon sex show...
(Gotta love my 50 1.4 lens and good 1600 ISO on the Canon 10D. This shot came was basically taken in the dark with just light coming out from our bedroom to iluminate the little guy.)Posted by Tony at January 8, 2004 11:05 PM | TrackBack
