Raton Laveur in Montreal, Quebec The French name for Raccoon is "raton laveur" (~washing rat) because they sometimes soak their food in water to soften it up. Ran into this guy on a path in the foresty park at the center of Montreal. He was nice enough to post and chew something while I tried a few angles.

  1. A superb shot, showing the full animal, in a great pose, whilst still being a closeup. Very usable! Posted 4 years ago
