Hide and Seek with a Young Raccoon (Five Photographs)

At a certain point in the summer a family of raccoons took over a tree. They are not there every time I pass but when they are it’s a bit of a show (I posted one waving at me in a earlier post). The raccoons are certainly curious and after hiding they will come out to gaze back at you, they do not seem much disturbed by us, secure as they are in their tree house. The chiaroscuro light has an effect on color. Dealing with the color-cast was an interesting exercise in avoiding desaturation. I have become more tolerant of noise, given that without high ISOs I would never get shots like this.
