There was a pair of amorous raccoons in the Cedar tree by my bedroom window yesterday.
Clara, my cat, directed my attention out the window...I noticed that she was intent on something - her tail was thumping against the window in irritation.
At first, I only saw the one...and she was not happy that I'd intruded. She's hissing at me...this photo was taken in poor light, so I played with my "fun" options on my Easy Share photo software...I kind of like the cartoon effect, and it seems to fit the situation.
It was a first for me, watching a couple of raccoons go at it in a tree. They were about 25 feet up, and on a precarious-looking limb. Sort of reminiscent of satin sheets on a water bed...
I'm not even going to speculate on what it says about me that I watched...and took pictures. I'm claiming "naturalist curiosity".
