Baby Raccoons

Look at the sweet little visitors we had today!

Not one, but TWO baby raccoons were camped out in the tree in our front yard.

Each one was curled up in a little Y-shaped area of the tree branches, napping away the afternoon.

One stayed fairly well hidden, barely bothered by my taking pictures.

The other one was a little more curious.

They stayed the whole afternoon and were still there after it got dark, although they had moved closer to the main trunk of the tree. When we got home from grocery shopping they were gone. Mama must have come and gotten them.

It was so cool to watch them all afternoon through our front window. I wonder if they will come back? I would guess they will look for a more isolated spot for napping, but who knows, we might see them again.
