Raccoons are notoriously adaptable, able to live in just about any environment – even dense, industrial urban ones. This was proven the case when my friend and co-worker, Ed, alerted me to family of raccoons digging through the dumpsters at our office this morning.
By the time I got back there, all four were in the process of fleeing and the low, pre-dawn light made for very tough shooting conditions. I did manage one decent shot of the one of the adults before the family scampered under a fence and out of view.
While I’ve seen these guys a few times, this is the first time I was able to get a half-way decent picture of one. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for their return in the future.
