This guy was in one of our trees yesterday afternoon. We usually don't see the raccoons of the neighborhood, just witness their tracks later on since they prowl around at night. We think that they are the ones who will destroy rubber toys in the backyard on occasion. I saw an entire family wander across our yard one morning; I was looking out the window quite early in the day. The boys found this fellow and were pretty excited about him. He seemed nervous about the attention until I brought out my camera then it seemed like he was trying to get a better look and scrambled a bit closer.
When I was growing up we had lizards in our backyard as visitors. Quite the different creature from squirrels and raccoons. And we never had moss growing on our trees. It is amazingly green here.
