A few weeks ago, I wrote about having some trees cut down because they were encroaching on my neighbor's fence/yard. The largest of these trees contained a raccoon's nest (I also described my first discovery of the raccoons, here.)
My SWF photo contribution for this week was taken during the tree removal process as the chainsaw-wielding young man was about to cut down the limb holding the raccoons' nest, which can be seen as the round object at the end of the tree limb (click to enlarge), at about 10 o'clock in relation to the lift bucket. It was a scorchingly hot day with a clear blue sky and only a few contrails visible . You can see the sheen of sweat on his back. I'm mighty happy that I was just standing in the yard taking the photo.
Speaking of Sky Watch Friday, and pay a visit to the new site, here. Several hundred folks from around the globe will be posting their sky photos there, beginning at 7:30 p.m. GMT tonight , and continuing for the next 48 hours or so.
