OH wow, I can't wait to have a look at all your beautiful photos, Jean! I really have to go now, but they are so gorgeous, I must move there straight away, and hug one! The way they're squashed into this trunk, and that one has such a long suffering look on its' face, is divine, priceless, in fact! She seems to have elaborate eye make up on, they really are attractive little creatures, aren't they? Everyone will be in love with them once they've seen your collection, Jean...

Catch up with you tomorrow, when we'll return to have a lovely browse!

Until then, adios,

Thank you Sue (and maggiemoostix too!)

When I first spied this litter, I thought it was just one. But then I noticed it was all twisted up and must be something wrong with it. I was so relieved to see it was more than one and playing an eye illusion on me. The whole litter was piled up for a nap and this one woke them. They came down then with their mom for a stroll and she had a snack as they were still not eating food yet. They slept up that tree for about three afternoons.

Hi Jean a new gallery? The animals are sweet. Greetings Hans

Jean Gregory Evans on November 9, 2008

Yes, Hans! Thank you! I decided to use the gallery for my older photographs and especially to show Maggiemoostix my raccoons. (Sue's daughter!)

Thanks for stopping in and your compliments.

Are the raccoons your pets?

Jean Gregory Evans on November 9, 2008

No, Hans, they live in the woods around my house. My house is in the woods. We share. I do not pet them, only view them. :-)

didier, the mom had them stashed up there for their sleepy time and she sneaked away from them for a while to get something to eat and drink and then sat on the ground and rested for a while before she joined her litter. At least that is what I have seen a mom do since I took this photo.
