Raccoon (Multi-Photo)



A furry ball, with legs, 

mischievous, bandit-like,

omnivorous, curious, stalking,

walking in our area,

which is also his area,

our area,

his kind were here first,

in a way, we are the intruders,

bare-skinned, bipedal, tall, 

like-wise mischievous, ape-like,

dangerous, stalking, stealing…

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the "tack icon" at the upper right corner... or, on my profile page, you can click on the "Thomas Peace" icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

    • Thanks, Sci! Personally, I feel that some humans (these days) are far more dangerous. Some of my “hunting” relatives rationalize that raccoons are troublesome, creating havoc in areas where people also live. We live right on a river bank, where they are common, and they never cause any significant problems whatsoever. As long as you keep your trash in containers with lids… they don’t do any damage that is troublesome (other than possibly digging up a few plant bulbs that are planted in the spring… which is no big deal).
