This is beautiful. You took a perfect shot of this little fellow. The focus is on the face and eyes which fits. The rest of the body is still sharp enough while the background is obviously blurry. A well done photo.

I used to be deathly afraid of raccoons and now sometimes when I see pictures like this one I wonder what the heck I was so afraid of haha.

That's funny... They are little bandits after all..
Well, they are cute and most of the time are fairly safe. But its good to be a little wary, they can be extremely dangerous if they put their mind to it. If you ever see a cat/raccoon fight, the raccoon wins every time.

Yeah my fears came from camping they used to come out of the dark woods and make racket. Lol. Sill childhood fears. They can be nasty though like you've said. I've seen them fight each other. TERRIFYING. I would never want to see a cat and raccoon fight.

They do tend to creep out at night don't they. We have hundreds of them out here..Vancouver.

We used to sit by the fire and there was a bit of a ledge where it went down to the water and you could hear them fighting and we would be sitting by the fire and they would just POP up next to it. Yikes. They are very cute in the day time though (obviously not when they are infected with rabies but still). I've always wanted to go to Vancouver. Its on my destination lists. I hear wonderful things. And I read a book and it was located there partially.

yikes is right, that would be disconcerting to have them pop out of the dark. Yes, Rabies tends to be a bit of a downer..lol.
Vancouver is beautiful... ocean, beach, mountain and city all within steps. It is worth a visit.
was it a good book?

I will visit there eventually. It was The Swarm by Frank Schatzing. It was fascinating. It is a HUGE book. I think it was over 1000 pages, but it was super awesome. Very Michael Crichton like with all the research that went into it. It is a lot longer than it actually needed to be, there were parts that could be cut out but it was still a great book. I recommend if you like scifi and biology or animals in general. And have a decent chunk of time on your hands haha.

HHmm, sounds interesting... I will take a look and maybe give it a try. I used to like Michael Chrichton, still do I guess, that's my ADD i shift authors and genres lol.
I'll have to figure out how to find time for a 1000 pages, at least its likely not as big as Atlas Shrugged, there is 1400 pages that could have been edited lol...if I got through that this should be a snap.

Last night I was walking in the dark...found your friends.. i wasn't paying attention... and all of a sudden, I almost step on a raccoon, scared the hell out of me.. there were 3 of them all looking up at me like - what the hell was i doing. They didn't attack though, so all good.
