A raccoon spends the lazy summer afternoon in a forest tree and has no plans to flee. This tree limb is a favorite place for this raccoon to visit. She climbs the tree and looks in through my sunroom window to watch me as I paint at the easel or sit in the lounge chair and read. She no longer minds the click of the camera. She is a most pleasant companion but I think that she wishes that she had a camera of her own. Photo taken in the ancient mountains of North Carolina, USA where raccoons are sometimes considered pests. Sometimes, but not always.
