A Gaze of Raccoons

Dan writes:
I set up my remote camera to gaze upon the base of these large white
pines at the edge of a wetland. I often find a raccoon latrine on the
side of the tree facing away from the water, and that was the case here.

In the early dawn of August 13th, this gaze of four raccoons happened
along. Other visitors included a neighborhood dog (who marked in front
of the tree), a fisher, a groundhog, and a "green bandit". (That's a
raccoon who has recently foraged in the duckweed-infested wetlands.)

According to the all-knowing Internet, a group of raccoons is called a
gaze or nursery. Given the banded tails and masks, I would have called
them a band.
