Backyard Wildlife Series : Raccoon

This beautiful raccoon was climbing a tree in the backyard this morning.  I am guessing it is a nursing mother foraging for food.  Although I wanted to get closer, I kept my distance as to not scare her.  She climbed a tree and was reaching for the newest leaves to nibble on.  When she was finished, she came down the tree and posed for a few pictures before she wandered back into the bushes and disappeared.  Nature is beautiful when we leave the animals alone.
