A Real Rarity
Posted By: Rickst, 07-06-2009, 07:58 PM

A friend e-mailed me and said I should stop out some evening with my camera. I stopped this evening and watched as she put some dog food on a stump in her back yard. First, a fox came in to snack a bit, but this wasn’t the really what she wanted me to see and get some shots of.

Later on an Albino Raccoon and her six young ones came in to feed!!

Both shots K10D with Sigma 400mm f/5.6 AF lens. Lighting was not very good, so I had to up the ISO and de-noise in post processing.

Holy jumpin! That is quite a rarity! It's beautiful, or as much so as a raccoon can be!
