Look what is curled up beside the road!
Actually, this is what the side of the road looked like--if you didn't look closely.
A curled up baby raccoon!
Oh my goodness, let's look closer. Do we see a second baby in the background?
The back baby. We should call him a raccoon "kit". That's what it is--officially.
You could have reached out and touched them. The camera was five inches from this kit's face. Don't touch, though. Mama wouldn't like it.
Mama will be back soon. She's just out hunting, I'm sure. We'd better not disturb them anymore. Goodbye babies! You are so adorable.
