For a nature photographer, its pays to take your time and visit the same area multiple times.  As you get to know the area, you will better understand your subjects.  A year earlier I saw a raccoon scaling this tree and climbing in this den.  Now every time I walk past this spot I use my telephoto lens to check the hole in the tree for activity.  On this day, I saw the young raccoons interacting with their mother.
