It happens to be St Patrick’s Day and the luck of the Irish is with me today. I was driving through the Vera Wetlands around mid-day, a mother raccoon and her three babies crossed our path and went into a green meadow across the road. As luck would have it, I was there with my long lens on my camera. I couldn’t believe my eyes as I watch the Mother raccoon escort her children to a safe area. They had come out of their home which was a hole in a dead tree.
The Mother raccoon gave her babies all her attention. The little ones were obedient and fell right in line staying close to their Mom. She picked up one with her teeth to help it along the way.
