Daytime Appearance

Our friend the raccoon made his first daytime appearance today! Ryan opened the door to growl at him, unfortunately, and he scuttled up the first tree so we didn't get a very good look at him.

I grabbed my camera and was able to snap a couple of quick pictures, but he quickly had climbed out on a limb and curled up to take a nap.

Our back neighbor called me later in the day to say a huge gust of wind came up suddenly and he looked up just in time to see the raccoon hanging upside down from a limb barely escaping a long and painful fall! The coon managed to get himself upright though and crawled out on another limb to finish his nap.

This would have been a great picture but for the branch
smack in the middle of his cute little face!

I hate to do it, but I guess I'll have to borrow the live trap again soon. He is terribly cute, but he is really not welcome in our backyard.

What an adventure! Can you study racoons as part of home school?

That's actually a great idea! Abby would love it. She's such an animal lover.
