Raccoons

Procyon lotor

Description:

The classic bandit mask and ringed tail are dead giveaways for the common raccoon.

Habitat:

Circle B Bar Reserve, Lakeland, FL.

Notes:

The momma jumped out onto our hiking trail just a foot or two in front of my wife and we both commented on how skinny she was. Then, we noticed the three little heads stacked up on top of each other on the tree right next to us. I didn't have the camera ready for that perfect shot, but it was still fun to see this little family trotting down the swampy trail.
