Cute Lil Varmints


Growing up a farm boy I learned from early on that the critters posted here were varmints.  Raccoons were bad news whether in the sweet corn patch or the hen house.


And groundhogs were considered a problem in both crop fields and pastures not to mention the garden.

However as the years have passed my view of these animals have changed.  Now I welcome a close encounter with either species and a typical encounter today results in a few photo and then we all go home none the worse for the wear.

The raccoon is adorable! (As long as it's not in my garbage can)

"...he was a varmint anyway."

Same animal,different perspective. What a difference a few years and a camera in hand makes. Love the shots.

A change of perspective can make a huge difference. As Ruth said, having your camera in hand makes you look at things very differently. Although if that cute little raccoon was in your garbage it wouldn't look nearly as appealing.
