Evening Encounter


Raccoon mother and babies

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.
