[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was made at the Myakka River State Park in Florida - USA

A group of 4 racoon kids cossed our way.
The both on the picture were the most courageous of the little gang.

Sascha ;O)

Hi Sascha,
You're already in 2016 - I still have to wait almost an hour. :-) Interesting shot in difficult light conditions, the sunny patches didn't help the exposure, but you managed to solve the problem well, only a small part of the rather uninteresting background has blown out. Great pose and eye contact with the raccoon (double c) kids, nice shallow DoF to isolate them - good photo overall.
I wish you a happy and prosperous 2016 - kind regards from the Hungarian living in Ireland. :-) László

Hello Sascha,
Your tiny raccoon are so cute as they stand up tall on their long outstretched legs. Posed in a raised defensive stance they appear a tad bit uncertain of the world before them. Wonderful eye contact and nicely framed.

Hello Sascha,

Even in such difficult light, you managed to obtain the details and right exposure. Good work...... although I prefer to put my chest down on the ground to get eye level shot. I did it several times in Kruger (smile).
Thanks for sharing,
