Welcome to a photographic journey through the fields, woods, and marshes of New England
Here I’ll be sharing some of my favorite photographs from my forthcoming book Naturally Curious. I’ll be updating my blog periodically with new images, new stories, and more glimpses of New England in all seasons.
Raccoons are out and about in the winter during fair weather, if the temperature at night is above freezing. Look for the hand-like prints of their front feet, paired with their longer hind feet. The front and hind tracks alternate sides in each track pair. The pattern of these tracks indicates that this raccoon was walking, not bounding.
