Raccoon & skunks…

I am a people pleaser… At least I try.

Earlier, the fabulous Trina from It’s Good to Be Crazy Sometimes told me, and I quote:

Ooooohh I want a photo of a raccoon and skunks.

To which, I answered, and I quote:

Wish granted!! (did you feel me waving my magic wand over your head??) I’ll arrange something for you after work 😉

For anyone who would wonder where this special request came from, Trina had asked what wild animals we could see from our home window. Occasional raccoons and skunks were in my list…

A raccoon and skunks… Let me check…

There you go, dear friend!

Of course, the picture isn’t mine, since both raccoons and skunks are nocturnal animals. The couple of times I faced raccoons, I was armed with a frying pan (these critters are fierce, and not at all afraid of humans) and I try to keep my distance from skunks, for obvious reasons.

But I did as promised…

I might try to catch pictures of my own, but I doubt I’ll get both a raccoon and several skunks on the same shot.

I can give you two squirrels, though!

A lot less dangerous, but still…

*Ugh* I have a feeling I might get a call from my landlord soon, telling me we have to stop feeding the birdies, because it ruins their grass. But to be honest, it wasn’t that great to begin with…

    1. They are amazingly intelligent critters! My landlords have an artificial pond in our backyard, and one day, a couple of years ago, I came back home to find 3 or 4 of them sitting in the water as if they were in a jaccuzzi, you know, just chillin’… 😉
