Least shy of all are the park's Raccoons. These young ones only climbed a short way up the Boxelder tree to flee the crazy photographer...

Will be "out on the trail" and also busy with a number of park events, so unable to stop by here for several days. But sure do hope you enjoyed these few glimpses of East Tennessee wildlife, and that you will share your comments & critique!

Amazing.

I love the Giant Leopard Moth and adore those shots of the Black & Green Snakes, superb.

Those Racoons are so cute

Another fine series.......Wonderful shots of the snakes & raccoons. Your season is months ahead of ours from the looks of your milkweed. You have some great butterfly pictures here as well.

This leaves me wondering with all the great creatures large and small in TN what was it about the Mole (after seeing it's picture) that was so endearing to cause you take its name as your handel?

What a beautiful part of the world you have there, the Giant Leopard moth, The last of the Green Snake, and the first of the 'coon pic's are my fav's. Thanks again for the posting.

Kevin - Thanks so much - so glad you enjoyed my scaly and winged "neighbors!" Raccoons are definitely cute, but becoming a real pest in our park's campground area...

Lou - We had a very mild winter, a very warm wet spring, and are now having a record-breaking hot summer. Everything has been blooming, hatching, etc, at least two weeks early this year!
Choice of Mole is a long story - a nickname that began at a Ranger training session many years ago...

Simon - And thanks so much for your kind words, and for taking time to comment. I am indeed blessed!

Wonderful shots, mole. I'm especially keen on the raccoons. They are one of my favorites. Although, my husband always reminds me if I met one in real life I wouldn't think they were so cute. I can't decide which I like best. They are all great.
