I've been torn apart with this shot. Waited till it got something to eat in its paw/hands. I like it but, shouldn't I change its meal (clone something over it)

So what do I do,

Ronny

    Ronny, it is a very well done shot. The chicken leg is somewhat anti-cute, but critters is critters and they eat whatever they find!

    Now, if you were a biologist, you wouldn't miss the opportunity to do a studyentitled "Food Preferencesof Raccoons at Garbage Dumps"- at this point it prefers chicken to ham or fruit salad!

    Obviously you are still visiting on this side of the Atlantic. Nice shot.

    Superb shot - razor sharp.



    As to the food, the raccoon is a carnivore, so eats meat. If you photograph a lion / tiger at feeding time, they will have chunks of raw, bloody meat.



    It's nature, and you have captured it and the evironment, brilliantly.

    I agree with the other comments. It's a nice very nice photo of a racoon being a racoon. The only suggestion I might make is to consider cloning out the "Julie" sticker on the orange. It's strangly distracting to me.

    Hi Ronny,

    Seeing as how it's a great shot of the racoon, if the "yuck factor" of the chicken leg gets to you, then I'd just clone off the foot part -- very easily done, and the thing it's holding just becomes an unidentifiable pink thing. Definitely less bothersome.

    Did you bathe and brush the racoon prior to shooting the picture? :G



    I like this photograph very much.

    Thanks Glen,

    the first I saw it, it's not that I was shocked, more surprised.
    Started cloning out the chicken leg, but very soon decided that is added
    a lot to the shot.

    Thanks Penolta,

    no I'm still on the other side, plan to come over next summer.

    It's not a free racoon but we do have them already :roll: in the wild - they seem to be great escapers.
