Spot the wildlife!

Matthew, who initiated the “spot the ___” feature with nightjars, sent a new one that came as a tw**t.

Matthew gave one hint: you’re looking for a raccoon (Procyon lotor). Can you spot it?

As usual, please don’t give the location in the comments, though you’re welcome to praise your own ability or decry your failure to see the beast.

          But it seems like he just mailed this one in. The raccoon is easy to see without even embiggening the picture. Matthew – we are used to a level of pain in the “Spot the ….” feature. This is more in the category of look at the raccoon.

    I thought I saw it, then I knew I was wrong because I saw it somewhere else. It’s a very cute raccoon!

    With one eye.

    Literary, the eye I can’t yet close independently again happened to tear up just then.

    Kawaii raccoon! (I always wanted to spell that one out. Thanks, Matthew!)
