      Well, it is the front foot of one of two young raccoons that were taking a nap in the fork of a Live Oak tree.  This was the only part I could get a picture of because of the foliage.  I’m sure there are lots better captions out there.  If you have an idea, I’ll take it.  thanks.  bill

    Never mind.  I just Googled “image of live oak leaf” then “image of raccoon’s foot” and realize that live oak leaves differ entirely from the oak trees in my area and that raccoon toe nails are placed on top of their toes.  Thanks for the learn-something-new-every-day lesson.
