They are sure cute little devils that's for sure, until they grow up and want food!  Your picture taking ability is progressing beautifully.  You are already there with the "dark room" so we'll hope to see more.
What's their names Ron?

LOL, 'tis the season!

These are wonderful pictures Ron!  We just had 3 raccoon babies venture out of the knarly old willow tree for the first time on Saturday. They climbed "up" then couldn't get "down" until mom came to their rescure later in the night, to guide them safely back home to their hollow, lol.

Excellent pics ... loved these little faces!

These are beautiful pictures!  We have many raccoons where we live in the country. In self-defense, we have been feeding them every night, for 23 years!  I am happy to say they have never gotten into our garbage cans, or anything else around here! A little dog food goes a long ways in amiable relations!

How do you cuff a bandit like that?

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

That is too cute.

When my ex was living with me in an apartment, they used to come around late at night. He would hear them, get up, and feed them. Pretty soon they let him pet them. THE most Amazing thing I'd ever seen!!!. He fed the squirrls that came around during the day. I called him Dr. Doolittle.

cute, yes, but "cute" can do a lot of damage.

And don't try cornering "cute" either. They fight like banditos too.

I am being held hostage by a frog. Yes, dear friends, I cannot go out onto my screened in porch because there is a FROG out there. How the heck he got in I do not know. But until HE leaves, I'm keeping myself in my condo..sliding glass door closed (sometimes he climbs up there and I can see his belly - shameless display!)

Give me raccoons...at least they wander off sometimes....

Thanks, Betty Lou, for telling me what to feed them. Had I known that yesterday, I would have made a trip to the store. I actually think they would have waited.  

We have a lot of raccoons in this area, too, but most that I see are in someone else's field (or along side the road, pretending to be speed bumps). These little fellers wandered into my yard yesterday afternoon and made themselves right at home. I'm guessing it was likely their first foray away from momma (whom, incidentally, I kept a constant vigil for, lest she object to my presence). Having not yet been mistreated by humans, these guys had no fear of me and no objection to me joining them for an hour. It was pretty cool.

'Course, raccoons certainly aren't the only critters who come visiting ...

Yep - THAT one has bunny ears...

So - Did I mention waking up to find a bird flying around in my basement?  And my Orca-kitty adamantly refusing to come upstairs for breakfast?...

Until then he'd only seen them through the windows. Unfortunately he had his way with the poor bird, and he now stands vigil in my kitchen window - intently watching my bird feeders - tortured with the mere memory of his big day yesterday...

Sorry, Karen, but I'm afraid it's not the season for ladybugs in these parts. Can you wait until Fall?

Until then, here's a very distant cousin . . .

I chased this guy around the yard for an hour, trying to get a picture of him actually ON a flower. Guess he wasn't hungry that day?

Nan, generally, when a predator goes rogue the usual prescription does NOT include making them watch a parade of prey. Indeed, you might want to apprise Orca what IS the usual prescription . . .

Strangely enough, I don't have any pictures of cats yet. LOL. At least, not live ones.

I have chased many a buzz around trying to catch him on the flower!

Yay for animals!! It makes me sad though, reminds me of my dearly departed finch (cry)

Love's a lovely lad
His bringing up is beauty
Who loves him not is mad

Great photography Ron, and sorry to hear you have no cat pictures.  Here's a picture of the cute cat that lives next door.  I can assure you that I make sure to watch its every move, (especially when night falls!)


Hey, Sharon this seemed somehow appropriate.  What do you do with a left over prince anyway right?
