A Family Outing for the Raccoons
This morning, I took a hike on the Opelofa Trail and River Trail at the Ocmulgee National Monument, a few miles from my house. The morning air was fairly comfortable, so other than a few annoying deer flies, the walk was nice. I spotted lots of birds, one deer, several monarch and red admiral butterflies, and this family of raccoons that were coming across the swamp. The mother and three youngsters were a bit muddy, but still fun to watch as they scampered about. Finally, she heard my camera as it snapped the photos and took off through the brush.
