Yours truly needs something a bit lighthearted right about now, & this photo Eberle took on Wednesday evening is pretty doggone sweet. Of course, raccoons pack a goodly share of aggression along with their intriguingly mischievous looks—just try chasing a mother raccoon & her cubs away from the porch cat's food some evening! But these two young raccoons seemed to be as intrigued by Eberle & her camera as she was with them. She says they seemed to think they were invisible in the cherry tree!
Thanks, Eberle, for making this photo available for Robert Frost's Banjo—but don't share too many of those cherries with the raccoons!
