I was sitting on the screened area of our deck late Sunday afternoon when this guy showed up. I managed to get my camera and get a few images of him in the act. He is a very bold guy. He loves the sunflower seeds. He eats them like popcorn.

    That is unusual, a raccoon showing up before nightfall and you got a clear shot of him... .. Yes, those guys do love sunflower seeds plus jelly and hummingbird nectar ...after they've wrecked several jelly dishes and hummingbird feeders different times, I get out there before dark and retrieve these utensils....However, they still get on the big wooden bird feeder that is attached to a post when they make their nightly visits and have knocked the sides off different times...
