Just look at those inquisitive, and trusting eyes. He (or she) showed up early one evening at the door of the retreat, said ‘hello’ (sort of) then vanished. I don’t think I ever saw him again. They are gentle creatures normally.

You have such wonderful pics here Rusty. I must say I am sory I do not get to your blog more often but this is our busiest season at work and in the evenings and weekends, I am working hard to get my final things done for my website. As you can see, I also only put something every second day on my own blog as I do not have enough time for it. By the middle of December, things slow down again, then I will have more time.

I love all your fall colors, we do not get it here so they are always a marvel to me. Just LOVE the squirrel - they are the cutest little things.

Your picture Winter Evening is just perfect as it is. It has a kind of haunting side to it which makes me want to be sitting under that tree, looking out across the water.

Of course the raccoon is the best of all. They have the most adorable faces and seem so trusting. You get great pics of them.

All the best. Have a great weekend.

I've been missing your blog for the past few days. Good to see all your great photos. I especially like the face of the little fellow in this one. My son really likes it, too. He's fond of raccoons.

I am sure they will be back now and then.

Hi Joan. This blogging is a riot. One moment we are reading or seeing snow in the far north, the next moment we are seeing the latest pics where it's now summer. And the variety is magnificent! I'm sort of wondering how to handle things now that winter is about to set in here - but something will come up - working on trying live video clips too. Keeping busy - grin.

Hi Gail. The problem with the raccoons is often they are hard to tell who is whom. Some have distinctive markings, some very interesting persoalities. They are the easy ones. Now I have not seen the mother raccoons since early September - but it has been the same for the last two years. If they can - they will be back next year. Sometimes the youngsters return, but generally they move into their own territory further away by the following season.

Oh My Goodness. I'm so glad you found me as I have found YOU! Your photos are astounding. Your raccoon is wonderful but I particularly love your sky shots and the Blue Jay series. There are Blue Jays all over my county but they rarely view my peanut feeder :/

Thanks, Rusty.
