last week sometime we were driving down our street coming home from somewhere, and in broad daylight we saw this little guy poking his head out of a tree about 2 houses down from us. of course i didn't have my camera at the time, so i've been waiting for the chance ever since to run down there and take his picture.
he is so curious--he just sat there letting me snap photo after photo of him before he finally retreated back inside his home.
we haven't seen him rummaging around the 'hood at all, and i also think from the size of his head that he seems like a young one. the racoons around here can get very large (like the opossums i wrote about earlier).
we joked about how funny it might be to get a glimpse inside his "home"--what a mess it might be. i think we have watched the movie "over the hedge" one too many times...
here's another more far-away shot so you can get an idea of the size of him in relation to the tree he lives in:
