I caught this raccoon grinning for the camera at Ellen Trout Zoo in Lufkin, TX while I was home on leave. There has been enough info on raccoons posted on this site so I won't bore you with more of the same. Maybe a caption contest for this photo would be fun. Enjoy

What a cutie.
To me it looks more like it is barring it's teeth. :-)
The eyes look so sad.
Not much fun being caged I imagine.
Good focus and light as well as use of DOF to lead the eye to the subject.
Caption: Please, Please Let me Out
Thanks for sharing Billy

Hi Billy,
beautiful funny face! Good details and DOF. These animals are very attractive. Thanks for sharing,


A darling shot! ha ha
Hey, if you get a chance go to the Kendall Art Gallery on West 1st in San Angelo and check it out. You should enter next year...seriously!

You captured a great expression, good details, and wonderful light in the eyes.

Did he do something naughty? He looks like he got caught in the act! But how adorable... in the picture. I'm sure he's not that adorable when he ruffles into your bins.

Great composition! Well done.


Hey Billy, great capture love the cheesy grin Cheers Rick
