The Raccoon Crossing at Turtle Pond

The photographer Murray Head took this remarkable picture on Saturday, 7/19/08. I've always heard that raccoons are fine swimmers. This is the first piece of tangible evidence that this is so.

[I wish I knew what that Black-crowned Night-heron in the background is thinking.]

PS The green stuff covering the surface of Turtle Pond is Duckweed, a fine, native plant and a good food source for many water fowl.
