Baseball, Rainbows, Raccoons and Timing

I doubt New York Post photographer Charles Wenzelberg thought a raccoon would put him in the headlines.

He was at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, FL -- shooting a practice at the New York Yankees spring training facility -- taking photos of a rainbow when a loud sound startled him, most likely the clanging of a fallen baseball bat. He wasn’t the only one startled.

Wenzelberg turned around in time to catch a glimpse of a raccoon that had been hanging around near the dugout retreating towards the stands after the noise.

That’s when he trained his camera on him and was able to snap off a cute photo of the critter peeking up over the seats.

“Its head pops up for a split second and maybe I caught two frames. I got lucky,” Wenzelberg said.

Sometimes we’ll be in a certain place at a certain time, thinking we are there for one thing, but then we come away with something else entirely. Always be alert, because you never know when an unexpected opportunity will show up!
