Ranger Rick?/Camera Critters

 Baby raccoon

This is one of four babies waiting for mama to return from foraging eating peanuts being given her by visitors to the conservation area where these critters liive.

 All four babies

The light was bad and the little raccoons would not stay still, so the photo is a bit fuzzy. But you can see there are four.


Mama must have told them to stay in the tree because they did. But they were ALL OVER the tree - practicing their up-and-down skills, I guess.

They are cute critters, Love the shot of all four of them in the tree. Great sighting and photos.

In this case the raccoon youngsters are obeying their mother much more than human youngsters do.

VioletSky said...

they do become quite skilled at tree climbing - and this is why!

They are so cute, but trouble!!!
Love your photos!

Kate said...

Right now they are very appealing and attractive, but when they get older they're not so much fun and can be a furry heap of trouble!

Awww,they are so cute.

Jill said...

They are adorable! Love getting to see the 4 together.

Kathy said...

Definitely cute but definitely a pain in the neck if you get one on your property!

Sandra said...

either mama left them in the tree to protect them OR she was hogging all the peanuts for herself. LOL so cute

Birdman said...

Looks like something has been busy trying to get into that birdhouse.

Gillian Olson said...

You have done it again! I am always amazed at your nature photo's. These little guys are cute and learning about all the mischief they can get into.

Ugh... I know some people think they're cute. But I just can't look past the trouble they cause. :S

They are indeed cute -- but one mama raccoon killed many of our birds this spring and summer! Such is nature!

Cute capture of the four siblings!

These give new meaning to the term, "rascal." But got to admit they are cute. Just keep 'em out of my garbage! :-)

This is a great photo sequence. The babies are cute, even if they are rambunctious.

Mary said...

Cute little bandits. I have not seen them in these parts, but we have a skunk sometimes. Makes me worry to go out the back door at night. I do not want to scare him...but we can tell when he is near...smell.

Hanne Bente said...

They sure are cute, but one of their family likes to dig up my tomato plants. I'm getting a little tired of replanting and one of them didn't live through the ordeal. Nice find!

I guess some of your commentators have mixed feelings about racoons. Living in the UK I dont have to woory about their bad habits and i love your pics of them.

Rose said...

Aren't they adorable...

Rohrerbot said...

I love all of your racoons. This would have my attention for as long as they were playing outside:)
