BBC Wildlife No. 02 Vol. 42

THE COVER Our cover this month features a raccoon, photographed in Germany by David Hup from the Netherlands. “I was drawn to this one because of its striking high-contrast fur,” he says. “Each raccoon’s distinct facial markings, akin to bandit masks, are as unique as their personalities.” David used a NIKON Z6, 200mm, 1/160th, f3.2, ISO1000.
