Thirty Little Collages - Raccoon

This group of postings show the finished 6" x 6" collages and also the text that I wrote about the animal and included in the collage.

Sierra Wildlife Rescue's Squirrel Team, of which I am a proud member, was invited to see a group of four infant raccoons that another team member was rehabilitating.  Of course the first thing I noticed about them was how very cute they were.  But after I got over that intense first impression I noticed a striking aspect of their behavior - that they were constantly fingering every object in sight.  I later learned that the term "raccoon" was derived from the Algonquin for "they touch things."
