Default 5 racoon cubs/kits

The first critters I came across today were 5 racoon kits walking/running along a levy. They each were about 10-15lbs and looked pretty healthy.

This little guy was checking me out as I took his picture.

Then brother/sister, I wasn't that close, stopped to check me out as well.
They really didn't seem to mind that I was only about 25feet away.

At first I thought there were only three and this was the last one bringing up the rear.

About 30 minutes later I saw this cub heading for cover clear on the other side of the refuge. I must have been a good spring.

I thought the same thing. Gangly was the word that came to mind.
Thanks for looking Bill.
