The last couple of evenings, Mama raccoon has brought out her kits.
Last night, they were minding their own business (that is, eating)...
...when two of them suddenly scrambled up a nearby tree.
Their anxiety came from the appearance of a doe,
and they peered back timidly from the side of the tree as if to say, "Is it safe?"
Deciding to risk it, they sidled back down, but after a few tense moments, the raccoon family retreated to the woods.
"Was it something I said?"
