High Five!



While muddin my way through the woods and before I stumbled upon the wood ducks, I happened to catch a glimpse of some fluff sticking out of the top of a rotted tree trunk while scanning the trees for migrants. I knew exactly what it was, and rounded the tree to get a better view. What I couldn't see from behind the trunk was the paw sticking out lazily as the raccoon napped. Hearing my shutter fire, the furry arm tucked into the trunk hollow for safekeeping. I got the message, I left him to return to his napping. It doesn't look very comfortable though, does it?

That is a cute photo. How great that you were able to spot him as the tail blends in so well. Every one is waking up from their long winter naps and starting to make appearances...spring is coming!

No...it doesn't look comfortable - in fact I think his little paws are swollen ;-)
