A figure I made for my Mother's birthday. When the raccoons around here get desperate for food, they'll climb the branches of our lilac bush to get at, and pillage, the bird feeder, bending the heck out of the metal pole holding it up in the process.
Newsprint, tissue paper, cardboard, plastic, wax crayon shavings, white glue, crazy glue, a wire twist tie, gloss nail polish, fishing line, and acrylic paint.
Dimensions (excluding hanging wire):
5.5 cm/2.2 in. x 8.6 cm/3.4 in. (widest point x highest point)
Two days; October 25 and 26, 2009.
Here's a photo of a mother raccoon, and her four kits, visiting our old bird feeder for a late night snack. Sorry the picture is a bit on the grainy side, but it was obviously dark when I took it, and there's only so much the camera's flash can do under those conditions.
(In no particular order of importance.)

The background pattern is a photo of a baby raccoon that I found on Google and edited in an art program.
