I was out in the lane next to my house trying out some long exposure timed shutter release shots, when I heard a noise above my head and looked up to find this guy watching me from on top of the garage behind me. I had my camera on a tripod aimed the other way and set for 15 second delayed exposures. I grabbed the camera and tripod and held them both up while fumbling to change the settings in the dark so that I could get a shot of him before he left, but I didn't need to worry -- raccoons are such curious and brave creatures that he didn't move. He just stood there watching while I adjusted the settings.
