Raccoon With Tongue Out

By | May 20, 2020

Was this Raccoon sticking its tongue out because it knew I was taking its photograph? Actually, it was eating a carp. I wished I had seen this Raccoon catching the Carp because the fish was large.

How I Got The Shot – Raccoon With Tongue Out

This Raccoon was eating the Carp on the side of the auto tour road at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I parked a short distance from the Raccoon and walked up to it. This was near the 4-corners intersection.

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.
