STOPS ALONG THE WAY

RACCOON

Raccoon 2

This raccoon was quite easy to spot in its perch above the main hiking trail. There are a few resident raccoons in this reserve and we always keep an eye out for them. I like the way the leaves create a natural frame around the animal. Although I liked this effect, I made some adjustments in Lightroom using the Hue/Saturation/Luminance slider to adjust for the brightness of the leaves.

  1. Perfect shot! I love the details of your photos…something I am striving for. These little guys come raid our bird feeders (our feeders are designed for equal opportunity feeding) late in the evening. It is rare to see one in the daylight here.
