So this morning before I went to school, the door bell rang. This is such a rare occurrence but as I had heard the door close as B went out, I assumed it was he trying to get my attention. It worked. When I opened the door, I saw a large racoon on the hickory near the house. In the picture below, you can just barely see its head about head high.
The light was not quite bright enough and the flash did not reach, so the pictures vary some.
If you look carefully you can see the moon behind it.
But the flash reflecting in its eye looks similar to a full moon, too.
After a few minutes of eyeing each other, it decided to come down.
It was rather amusing to see it climbing down head first.
Then it righted itself....
(This one is furry and fuzzy; it was on the move)
and came on down.
It peeked around at us......
And decided it was time to move on.....
Through the garden, of course!
