Young Raccoon is curious. He sees me looking at a Wild Mushroom that has already been toppled over. He comes to see what I am interested in. We both examine the mushroom and discover that nobody took a bite. We both decided that it is not edible.

    Without doubt a new favorite for me! How awesome is this…love it Jean!

  • Thank you! It was such a treat to see this little raccoon come into the camera’s view screen. I couldn’t believe my luck! It sure made this rather blah shot of the mushroom on a cloudy day an memorable event for me. I just never know what will happen when I’m practicing for the good stuff.
