'Sweets' With Flowers (no pun intended)

Sitting by the blooming flowers waiting for attention, Sweets, the angelic raccoon, is hoping for what she always hopes for, a handout. I’m sure she thought of digging in the flowers but she did not. She’s a young, and totally innocent raccoon.

Sweets is a wild raccoon that lives in the hardwood forest that surrounds my home, a cabin in the woods in the mountains of North Carolina, USA.

I'm sure the view count won't stay underwhelming long on this one:)

I was just thinking about you and your raccoons on the way to work this morning. I saw a raccoon out in the pasture busy working away at something??? No time to stop and see what it was...and the raccoons I see are never as beautiful as yours...now I know your secret...you fatten them up with treats:)

Have you seen Margot is back posting - with some beautiful green spring shots. Is good to see her back. Now maybe one of these days I can get back more than an occasional drop in visit????

Oh yes, YSL!

Howdy, Sweets! If you like modeling, you picked the right cabin!

Cute, perfectly cute. Maybe the online dictionaries could just make a link here? That should be enough :).

Well done, Jean, again.

She's so cute to deserve all my wonder and the PANstar. Have you tried to see if she can be approached without her trying to escape? Compliments for this photo: for the subject, the situation and his quality. Ciao from Italy - Angelo

Absolutely perfect Jean - our night time visitor (to our cabin in the high woods) is still shy and prefers to scrounge when we are abed.

If (when) we lived there full time, I am sure some trust could develop.

Thanks for this bit of delight - Jethro
