A raccoon in the Everglades hoping for some of my fresh water.

Raccoons in the Everglades are exposed to brackish and/or salt water and must seek out fresh water sources for drinking. As I hiked through the mangroves, I came across this raccoon appeared to be a little hopeful for a drink of my fresh spring water.
