Second night in the Jonah log

When I checked the camera at the Jonah log, I was disappointed to find that the raccoon didn't return. The new arrangement with the camera stuffed back into the "whale's belly" would have given a head-on view of the rascal, and the red-eye setting would have knocked the eye reflection down several notches.

But when I downloaded the pictures I saw that the raccoon had indeed returned. Check out the top of the picture. You can see its legs and feet right of center. Apparently one meal of salted herring was enough.

Not so with the deer mice. They ate more salted herring than peanut butter (that glob in the center of the picture was still there in the morning).
