17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

A few weeks before, we had a mother raccoon give birth to these babies in an old chimney at our house. Sometime later the mother moved them to an unknown location. They showed back up under the eave of our neighbors garage on a rainy day. They were just hanging out under the eave to get out of the rain. They allowed me to get very close to capture this image. They were very still, and seemed very curious of me.
