Maybe Related To Cinnamon Raccoon

By | April 14, 2020

Back in July 2018 I photographed a Cinnamon Raccoon at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. The photo below is of a Raccoon I photographed near the same place. It looks like it could be related because of the color. It looks darker but the Raccoon was wet which makes it appear darker. I don’t think it is a true Cinnamon but I do think it could be related.

How I Got The Shot – Raccoon

I was east bound on the auto tour road near the 4-corners intersection. The Raccoon was crossing the road between the 4-corners intersection and the 4-corners parking area. I parked my pickup near where I saw it cross and got out to photograph it. This was at 7:38 a.m. I was hand holding a Fujifilm X-T3 camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached with a Fringer EF-FX Pro.
