My Two Visitors



You might have to click on the pictures to see them better. This evening I went to take the garbage out. I paused as I thought I seen something move and sure enough there was a raccoon looking around the garbage can at me. It moved out and came into full view in my back door. We stood there for the longest time just staring at each other, I started making a clicking sound which made the raccoon more curious. I was upset with myself as here I was face to face with a raccoon and no camera. I quickly ran into the kitchen and grabbed my camera, by this time the raccoon was heading to the back yard. I opened the back door in an attempt to get a picture when another one appeared. Of course I didn’t have the settings quite right on my camera, so the pictures are not the best, but heck all things considered they didn’t turn out too bad.

Pin It


  1. They are the cutest things but such rascals.

  2. Fun! The only thing we get in our backyard are squirrels and our neighbors' cats.

  3. They are so cute! We have a lot of racoons around too, one came very close to us once when we were having a campfire - just about scared me out of my skin! :)

  4. Yep, we get these visitors sometimes too!

    I gave you some awards!!

  5. How cool! Love that you managed to capture it on camera!!

  6. I love getting pictures of the random visitors that we get. It's fun to see who stops by your house. We have an armadillo (that's my guess) that is diggin holes under our fence. We tried filling in the hole with concrete and he just dug around it.
    Did your little one get to see?
