Shadow Shots: Shady Characters

It's been awhile since I went shadow hunting, so I set off to see what I could find. The snowy woods were streaked with the long shadows of bare trees, and crisscrossed with animal tracks - including my own.

I was pleased to meet one of my fellow forest dwellers who was also out for a stroll in the warm, slanting light of a winter afternoon. We sized each other up for a minute or two and then meandered off on our separate ways.

Oooh a raccoon! How exciting! I'm fascintated by raccoons even though we don't have them here in Australia. Beautiful photos. The top ones with the bendy trees is lovely!

Thanks, everyone! And for Teacher and Mary, yes, the raccoon thing could have ended badly. Thankfully, this one appeared to be young and curious, as opposed to aggressive and rabid, which is the other possibility for a 'coon out and about in the daytime.
