You know he's up to no good, or he wouldn't have worn a mask to conceal his identity.
Great punchline, I think I'll steal it!
I like that second pic with the reflection of the camera and your fingers. Pretty cool affect, even if you weren't trying for it.
Is this the one that was taking the huge dump in the yard at night?
Thanks! It was shot with the lens rested squarely against a window about 2 feet from the raccoon. It was the second pane of glass, farthest from the lens, that reflected the camera lens and fingers. Once I realized it, I took a number of shots to get the best image.
I adjusted light levels in Elements to reduce unwanted glare and reflections, but lost some brightness that shows the lens and my fingers. I like this photo and will have to play with the editing to improve it.
I spotted the raccoon at 2:30 this morning when I got up for some water. It wasn't fazed by the flash or a high intensity flashlight.
What's funny about this pic is the raccoon is actually standing on a raccoon live trap. I had put it out last week just fishing for feral cats but when the coon showed up there was no food inside.
They've been all over here and I have been having a little fox invasion too (and not the good kind!)...great pics
A few Muley's, but not many yotes (which is odd) and more fox.
I am loving my first spring on Little Park though!
So, you got a place up in the pinyons off Little Park? I don't know the area well but was up there recently to call owls. This hot dry weather is going to be hard on wildlife.
I'm relatively low on LP, real close to the Gunn. and CO confluence. Lot's of cool stuff to see though, and BLM access a few hundred yards away that goes down to the Gunn. and up to Glade Park.
Lmao! That's classic!
Classically stupid, and asking for serious trouble, like exposing pets and humans to distemper and rabies. Raccoons are major carriers of both. A few years ago we had an outbreak of feline distemper in raccoons that infected and killed much of the population. People were encountering sick, dead and dying coons almost daily. Folks get the impression that they're cute but raccoons can be vicious deadly predators.
Cute pics, btw.
Are you sure it wasnt one of your neighbors in a costume
