Woodland Creatures Series: Mika the Raccoon

Here's the second in my new Woodland Creatures series....Mika the Raccoon

I went to a baby name search site and searched the meanings for "raccoon". The female name, Mika, was the first and only name that came up. "The name Mika comes from the Native American origin. In Native American the meaning of the name Mika is: Intelligent raccoon."
Convenient, since I'd already decided that my raccoon looked pretty feminine. I even made her a little skirt.

I've had comments in the past where people have a hard time visualizing how big/small my items are, so I had the idea to do at least one photograph with a ruler to give a sense of scale.

* I just realized I should have had an extra "C" to correctly spell "raccoon". Oops. And I'm usually such a stickler for spelling.

Cute! My daughter's name is Mika. It also means "beautiful scent" in Japanese.

Weird...the name site said it meant "new moon" in Japanese.
It also means "gift from God" in Hebrew...but in Hebrew it's a masculine name and is probably pronounced "Mike-ah" instead of "meek-ah"...a variation of Micah or Michael.
