I didn’t alert Molly as I wanted to have my own time with our visitor. Eye to eye so to speak.

We looked at one another. He considering if he should go up or down. After a few minutes of our silent communication, he decided I was not a threat. He made his way down the tree and wandered off to wherever racoons spend their day.
