I’d like to share a great story about how I stalked this little raccoon wearing camouflage and using an 800mm super-telephoto lens.  But the reality is that my next-door neighbor called me over to show me a group of raccoons dozing in a tree in his backyard.  I walked about 4 feet away and shot it at point blank with a standard lens.  I even used fill flash when the first few shots looked dark.  He didn’t even flinch.  

I mean, really.  I’m embarrassed to admit how easy this one was.  Total gimme.
