Yep, found these and was able to get awfully close. I thought they were dead but nope, fully alive.

Cute as hell but will take off an eye though ... :lol:

Great shots Alan. We don't get them here and they are quite fascinating.

Nice captures there! Certainly don't want to get too close, though, you're right :)

Great shots.
I get them in my mulberry bush (really a tree) all the time.. but it is always at night. What are they doing out in the daylight?! The normal answer is rabies, but they look pretty healthy. And yes, really nasty critters.

Wow, lovely shots! I love raccoons they are such fascinating creatures. They are kind of mean to backyard pets like cats and small dogs though. My cats have gotten into several disputes with raccoons.
