I have kind of a love-hate-fear relationship with raccoons. I love them because they have such cute little faces and hands, I hate them because they make a mess of the yard, and I fear them because they are scary and vicious and freakishly strong and have huge fangs to tear and rend flesh. Their canine teeth are bigger than Dougal’s, and that is NOT RIGHT.
Luckily when they come around I’m able to observe them from behind the windows of my basement apartment: all the cute silly raccoon action without the terror!
Taylor Laramie: Wildlife Photographer. He was trying to take a picture with his phone and it was not working- the flash kept firing omg you can’t take a picture through a window with flash!!! Luckily I have a supremely steady hand so I was able to get some only slightly terrible pictures of our visitors.
I just realized the reflection of my camera hand in the glass makes it look like I’m holding the raccoon’s head O___o FREAKY!
