Uninvited visitors

I walked across the street to get a better view of the sunset. It was a lovely evening and I took time to wait for the sun to sag toward the horizon.

As I stood in the quiet, I heard munching coming from behind me. This is what I discovered when I turned around.

A mama raccoon and her growing brood had come for a snack. They were cleaning up the cat food left by the barn cats.

I tried to tiptoe closer, without making a sound, so I could get a better view.

Too bad they sensed me and took off.

This time they ran north, not up the tree. They all disappeared quickly, not pausing for more photos.
