Raccoon/Deer Encounter

I wish I got this on video. First there is a deer apparently licking its back. Then there is something in a tree. The deer is looking at it like, "What in the world?". Then the raccoon is out of the tree, and both the deer and the raccoon beat a hasty retreat. It seems they surprised each other. It's like the chicken and the egg. Did the raccoon climb the tree because it was scared of the deer, or was the deer scared of the raccoon in the tree? We'll never know.

Great action sequence, Jeebs. You don't get sequences like that very often.

Awww... The deer should have given the raccoon a ride on his back.
