This racoon and I gave each other a bit of a fright. I was walking alone on a rather remote and lonely trail in black bear country when I heard something large crashing away downhill through the brush. Then I saw this racoon scrambling up a small tree, which put it right at eye level with me, about fifteen feet away -- perfect for pictures.
Oddly enough, my husband and I saw a very large black bear today on this same trail, and when it ran off into the brush it hardly made a sound!

Hi Shelley
A very cute portrait of a Racoon. I love his pose he's giving you as he sticks out his tongue. To cute. Wonderful detail, colours and lighting.

Great portrait of a raccoon! Congratulations to this very beautiful picture!

I have an oil painting of a raccoon in a tree - looks very much like this one.

Hi Shelley,

Adorable picture of this Raccoon playing peek-a-boo. Did he stick his tongue out at you? Wonderful colors and details. I love those whiskers.

Hi Shelley,
Hmm is he sticking his tongue out at you?? :o) What a cute little think what a great shot! TFS

I'm not sure I would of stuck around for photos of a black bear, the racoon seems safe enough though..:o)

Very good picture, POV, DOF, Colors and composition are very good.
What a lovely face! These guys are so cute. In Quebec, we have to be very careful because a lot of them have rabies this year. Hope this clears up soon. Thanks for sharing this. Dan
