This is the ongoing story of Heidi and friends, raccoons who frequent my backyard feeder. Ok, maybe 9064 is a slight exaggeration, but it sure feels close, and I swear I think I've used up all of the titles on the planet now.
Anyhow, it's that time of year again. The 09 kits should be showing up at dinner soon. We are waiting on pins and needles to see the little cuties. There is no time so magical at the buffet as when babies are present. We love to watch the little fluff ball as they go about the process of learning about their new world. We enjoy seeing the world through their eyes.
The photo below was one of those accidental 'catches', a very happy accident. I was trying to capture the raccoon standing upright, but she kept dropping back down to all 4s before the shutter closed on my slow digital camera, so this time I tossed a peanut hoping to keep her upright. What I ended up with instead is a rather awesome moment frozen in time with the raccoon in the amazing process of catching that peanut in mid air - and in the dark at that.
