Abaout a month ago I was out driving around in the rural countryside like I so often find myself doing. There had been a fresh snowfall the night before, and the morning was brisk and cold. As I drove by this field, there was something moving out there but I could not make out what it was. So, being the curous sort that I am, I pulled over, got out my camera and set it on zoom. To my surprise it was a raccoon out in the field.
I watched him for quite awhile, and I could not quite figure out what he was doing. It seemed to be another furry animal underneath him. It seemed like it was perhaps another raccoon. Maybe a baby? The other one did not seem to be moving. I watched him for quite awhile, and he watched me too. I finally moved on. It seemed like an sad moment in nature. Here are a few of the photos I took.
