Raccoon with Stinky Dinner.

Heavy rains produced a few sad casualties in our little creek. After the flood levels subsided, the carcass of a young Skunk lay on the creek side. Alerted by the smell, and curious to see how nature would deal with this, I set up a camera and strobes for a night shot. It seems our local masked bandits will eat anything! The Raccoon left happily with his new found meal, the Skunk’s life wasn’t wasted, and the odor vanished into the night.
