This year’s crop of raccoons

This family of raccoons has been hanging around the neighbourhood of Glenbrooke North in New Westminster, Greater Vancouver awhile. I hoped to get a shot of them picking grapes but they’d moved on to the grass by the time I got my camera.

The “babies” must be teenagers by now, but they’re still playful as these photos show. Here a tail makes a nice boa/shawl for a cool morning.

Total relaxation/utter abandon.

They make a melodic “trilling” sound–sweet but nonetheless woke us up at the crack of dawn the other morning.

A convenient climbing apparatus:

What’re YOU lookin’ at?

They endured the paparazzi for awhile before moving on to more private backyard pastures.
