Three raccoons were seen in mid-day digging for turtle eggs at Green Cay Wetlands in Delray Beach, FL. I was surprised, because I thought they were nocturnal.

Been awhile since I commented so decided to stop by and take a gander at your portfolio. Wow! Julianne you have captured some splendid details in this photo of a raccoon. I could practically count all the individual hairs on this animal if I wanted too. Lighting and color hue are wonderful.

Terrific detail Juli. I like the choice of the square crop and the fact that you appeared to get this animal in a very natural inquisitive way.

What a sweet face! I love seeing all that dirt all over his nose. He has that look like he just got caught doing something bad lol. Congrats on a 6+ photo in the BEST OF challenge!

Great shot! I love the intensity of the gaze. And they're definitely active during the day - at least at the golf course I played in Tampa - they'd steal stuff out of your cart while you tee'd off!

Excellent capture and he looks guilty with the crumbs around your noise. The processing has bleached out some of the white on the nose. Also I don't know what you did around the outside but it doesn't work IMO. Good Luck. 4.

Racoons are theifs, and they are everywhere from where I am from. I love how you captured those mischivious eyes he has, he looks like he is trying to look pitiful. Nice detail. The color seems a litle off, and the photo is a little grainy, other than that, nice capture. Be proud.

cute, i like the close up style, it's just a little let down by lack or sharpness and fairly high noise. I like the muddy nose especially!
