Today’s “Fun Friday” post is a fairly common experience I come across when kayaking … a juvenile Raccoon “hiding” behind some grasses at the edge of the water, watching “that crazy person in that funny looking contraption”:
When I have an experience like this, I will quickly shoot a few frames, then slowly back away and let the little guy go about his business. This also helps to instill in him that I am no threat, which might come in handy during another encounter as he grows up!
