Bandit in the Snow

Real Estate Broker/Owner with North Sky Realty LLC 6502410580

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.

No that is Big Foot Michael. Just kidding, we have so many critters around here in Chicago Land it is really strange. They have spotted Coyote in the city! Often dear are crossing the street without looking both ways like my parents taught me.

Michael, Those are some great photos!  It does seem that wildlife is becoming much more urban than in the past!

Hi Michael,

Perhaps he was taking it for a burial somewhere. I love nature but sometimes it is sad and all you can do is watch. Thanks for the wonderful raccoon pictures.

Hi Michael, These are the cutest animals to photograph with there identifying markings. I could make out what was with this little guy but it does look to be another raccoon
