Mid-summer tracking

Looks as if a raccoon left some pretty sharp tracks.      

Probable raccoon track
They were so distinct that I made plaster casts of them. Here’s a close up of a hind foot.

Earlier this month, we found what we could only interpret to be a set of frog prints.

I think that the frog was going from left to right. Near the pen you’ll see the larger wedge- shaped hind prints, which seem to be a little deeper at the ankle and the toes. Superimposed over part of the hind print is the print of the fore feet, with tiny “fingers” splayed toward the center of the body.
