Baby Raccoons

On this very hot, humid evening, as dusk was moving in, I happened to look out onto our deck and saw an animal. At first I thought it was the woodchuck I'd seen several times this summer, but I quickly realized it was a very small raccoon -- and then I realized there was another one with it -- and soon after that, I realized there was a third one that had been hidden under one of the Adirondack chairs.

And off they went... There was no sign of a parent hovering nearby.
