This is why it's so hard to have a garden. One night, it was pitch dark, I saw 4 raccoons partaking of the water I leave for the birds. They sit next to it, dip their weirdly-human hands into it and cup it up to their mouth. I rarely see them except in the middle of the night. But this tells me they're around more often than I think.
Here they crawl up to the planter I use to grow potatoes or beans.
They move slowly, not at all like a squirrel or a fox, more like a human. And they can climb! Boy can they. Just a fascinating creature.
