Mama Raccoon takes her babies out for a walk and stops by for a drink of water.
Baby raccoons listen closely to mom who watches over them at all times and keeps them safe from the many dangers they are likely to encounter when away from their den.
Photo was taken in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, USA in Macon County near the small town of Franklin.
