I planned to post about this latest visitor to my yard last week, but went in a different direction instead. Today seems like a good time to introduce Rascal Racoon – so named because soon after his appearance, my yellow finch feeder was pulled apart, and one of my suet cages disappeared completely.
The day I took these (June 7th), I noticed him roaming around the Avian Eatery, and I skedaddled outside with my camera and tripod. I got lucky – the upstairs A/C was running, and masked any noise I made setting up (at a safe distance away, of course), so Rascal paid me no mind. These are the best of the pictures –
I also got about 30 seconds of video.
Also, Happy Litha/Summer Solstice and Bright Full Moon Blessings! Click HERE if you’d like to check out my post about the wonderful witchy events happening today.
