Hi Annick, I do love these delightful creatures, they always look as though they are up to no good. This is a lovely shot with great detail, sharpness and colours. Nice pov with head on shot. Beautiful features and wonderful catchlight in those lovely brown eyes. We have none in the wild in Britain so I am a little envious. Fabulous compositon.

Very funny model with roguish look on his "face" Another great portrait these time with floating water.

Excellent capture of this Raccoon in a fine pose staring at you. Great sharpness and fine colours. The soft reflections and colours of the water make a wonderful background. Very well composed too!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Cool one, Annick!
I hope to found this guy in wild with opportunity to get same quality shot as you did :)
Good evening Annick!
I like your raccoon. Focus is great, backgroud, color and detail - too. Maybe I prefer more detail on face, but it's only my cavil

Prachtige foto. De achtergrond maakt deze foto erg kleurrijk. Goede scherpte met erg goede details. Diepte in de foto, fotostandpunt en compositie vind ik prachtig. Evenals het oogcontact.

Mooie foto met een hoog aaibaarheidsgehalte. Scherpte is prima compositie ook. Mooi zoals het beestje je aankijkt.

What a peacefull picture. Very high on the cute scale. Well done.
What a cute picture Annick. I love this great eye contact, soft colors and action caught. They always are washing their food, this is so funny. It is for that reason that they are called in French (raton-laveurs). Those little mischievous ones are able to enter my home by my locked cat trap! It happened so often that I bought a cage to relocate them far from home :) They are wise and agile little creatures.
We have a problem with them though as many are sick with “rage” (is it the good word?) and there is a massive intervention to vaccinate them and to trap sick animals. Some planes have just dropped some food with anti-rage medicine in the country and forests and my entire region is in kind of an “alert state”… I just love those animals anyway. Thanks,

Although I enjoy looking at your beautiful photographs and this is another of them I feel it is not necessary to critique photo's of animals in zoos. I will keep looking though, especially for your wild, wildlife pictures.

wat een mooie opname van deze wasbeer. Het zachte licht en de groene tinten doen ook veel goeds.
Het ook leuk om te zien dat de raccoon ergens mee bezig is.
Erg fraaie foto!

A superb picture of the Raccoon staring back at you, Annick.
Very sharp focus and details.
I like the water BG -- particularly the ripples created by the animal's action.
TFS and regards.

This is just beautiful, Annick.
The light is fantastic, both on the raccoon and on the water.
Love the greens in the water.
The details on the raccoon are superb,
and you certainly caught him in a great moment,
full frontal view and washing his fooe.
Great eye contact.
TFS. : )

This one is wonderful! You captured the raccoon in the middle of his busy activity. We don't have this creature in the area where I live. Good composition with excellent colors and a DOF that renders a very sharp subject and blurs the background perfectly. The water in the background looks fantastic! I love the catchlights you captured in both of the raccoon's eyes. The fur is sharply rendered and looks great. Outstanding work! TFS!
With Friendly Regards,
