Tonight's Visitor

April 22, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

We were just relaxing at home tonight, when my husband, Don, told me to grab my camera, because there was a raccoon climbing the tree closest to our back door! I first came to the window to see this chubby little guy climbing up the tree effortlessly. He climbed higher and higher, and got way up there! We thought he might be going up to eat dinner from a bird's nest or something like that, but he just perched himself in the branch, and seemed to get ready for a nap! I had grabbed my camera, and was trying to capture him from inside the house, but that wasn't working. (Whenever we have seen other wildlife in the yard, we usually scare them off when we step outside.) It occurred to me, he would not be able to fly off like the beautiful birds I have scared away in the past when trying to photograph them, and to run out of the yard, he would have to come down first, so I probably had a pretty good chance of getting a few shots if I stepped outside with my camera. These little rascals are really cute! This was probably my favorite shot of him tonight! :)
