Default On the street where I live

Caught this guy triggering my motion sensor light. He then ran off with the yogurt container into the neighborhood.

Wow, it certainly has that 'Whoops, I'm caught in the act' expression on it's face.

Is this a racoon? Or something else?

Nice capture.

Nice catch.

If the raccoon continues to eat yogurt,
it will be one healthy critter.

Ah, those sly nocturnal creatures that can cause such havoc. Nice shot of the raccoon, I've always thought they were good looking, even while knowing how much trouble they can cause.

G'day dr S

great portrait of your 'spy'

I guess that the racoon is your equivalent of our aussie possum ... nocturnal, lives high in the trees, very inquisitive, loves a free-feed, gets into the house roof and sounds like a herd of elephants .... etc etc

Regards, Phil

Those critters are not afraid of anything. However, don't make one mad. I understand they have quite a temper and can cause some serious injuries if they attack.

Nice shots.

Nice shot!
The racoon's pretty face says "I did not do bad things!".
