The raccoons are  making their nightly rounds, eating cat food biscuits in the back patio.  I wish I could take a photo  of  them in real time but they only come by at night in an area that is not well lit.  By the time I get my camera out they would be gone.

There is the mother raccoon and her two kits are usually not far behind. I often see the mother raccoon in the front yard, not far from my door, and when she sees me she stands in an upright position her two hind legs.
