'' He's Not Heavy........''  :)  

Dear Ron, your Racoon sibling images are without doubt the best I've seen!   A wonderful capture of these two characters, and the empathy you have with your animal subjects, along with your expertise, just shines through all your images.  What an absolute delight, and a pleasure to view.  I Love it!

Fantastic photo in so many ways. Nothing much cuter than baby raccoons. Love the background, too.
