Surprise Guest

Every once in awhile, I peek out my window and find an unfamiliar face. Looking for a photo to share with you, I found this raccoon that visited last winter. Housing construction in our area, and more snow than is typical here, are two factors that might explain its arrival. Upon finding a food source, it stayed around a couple of days, and when the snow disappeared, so did the raccoon. 

Don't be fooled by the smile, it was hissing at me.
