The youngsters were partying too late; I caught these stragglers sneaking back home after 9:00 in the morning.

Half-grown raccoon kit.

There were five in the family. Only three showed up this time. Whether the other two have been caught by dogs or coyotes, or are just more of the homebody type, I don't know.

How one's face turned up in focus when nothing else was, is a mystery.

I followed them out onto the lawn, and they started to run. This photo is terribly fuzzy, but the lead kit's pose always makes me laugh.


  1. Our 'coons hang about in the afternoon. They are quite comical. They are quite dangerous with those opposable thumbs!
    Crazy kids!

  2. That shot, with the one raccoon's face in focus, is stunning!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
