  2. Already been seen on every news network worldwide for the last 24 hours in
    every display resolution conceivable. Again attesting to the proven fact
    that pixels and resolution, nor camera, will ever matter. CONTENT always
    trumps everything. Pro's know this, amateur snapshooters do not.

    So true.

    Just last night I captured an infrared video at only 320x240 resolution of
    some raccoon young'ns playing in my yard. They were at it for a good 10
    minutes, play-fighting with each other. Then at one point when one of them
    was on the other's back biting its neck, the one under-attack reared
    backward and they both fell into a water-dish set out for them. The one
    under attack now thoroughly doused (as well as the attacker) became furious
    and now became the attacker. I'm still chuckling from just thinking about
    it while trying to describe it.

    I showed that video-clip to several friends today and none of us can keep
    from laughing every time we see it. I must have watched it a good 20 times
    and I still laugh out-loud every time.

    Well, post the video, then!



    I'll second that request...

    Take Care,

  5. Hmmmm.... Just wait 'til the little bastards break through your kitchen
    door and evenly deposit a peck of ripe peaches about 1/4" deep on
    your kitchen floor... So cute - NOT! Then there is the battle to keep
    the garbage ***IN*** the can when raccoons are around. Funnnn! ;-)

    The ones around here have always been very well behaved for many years.
    They'll take food right from my hand. Very politely too. They've never
    tried to break into the house nor have they ever dug in my garbage. I
    wouldn't want them digging in anything dangerous. That which has to
    eventually be taken to the recyclers once a year is safely sealed-up from
    all wildlife, the rest is incinerated. People who live in the country are
    generally more aware and responsible about these things. We don't have the
    convenience of "out of sight, out of mind" garbage-pickup and an easy
    monthly payment to make it someone else's problem.

    I was considering posting the funniest part of this long video described
    above, but at only 320x240 resolution and seeing how people behave in this
    group I'd rather not. I'll just let close friends, people who deserve a
    good laugh in their lives, enjoy it instead.
