Kevin K. and I were over at Viera Wetlands on Friday. Here’s how one of our conversations went that morning…
“There’s something on the side of that dead Palm tree.”
(Raising telephoto lens for a better look through the windshield.)
“It’s a Raccoon.”
(Checking camera settings, slightly panicked.)
“I’m getting out of the car!”
(Fumbles with seat belt and door handle)
“That’s a picture!”
(Making quite a few…)
“Oh look, it’s crawling inside!”
“Aww – you don’t see that every day!”
(Hoping the image is in focus and exposed correctly.)
Shy Raccoon disappears. Elapsed time: about 45 seconds.
No, you don’t see something like that every day. Even when you’re out looking and paying attention to what nature shows you, things like this are rare – and a treat! Coming across them is a strong motivator for me to go out as often as I can. How about you?
Thanks for stopping by and reading the blog. Now – go make some photos!
