I was walking into a woods at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge (Northern Ohio along Lake Erie) and happen to look up in this tree and saw the furry back of this raccoon laying in a hollow spot on a branch. I made a little noise and got him to look up. I should have apologized for disturbing his sleep.

very cool shot - almost looks like he wanted that you take that picture from him.

Thanks for the nice comments, I was thrilled to spot the raccoon and happy he posed and that I had the right lens.
